Interestingly, at the time of Warren Buffett's announcement in 2006, his net worth was also about $45 billion. And if the roughly 500,000 A shares he held at the time were priced at today's prices, that $45 billion would be worth over $100 billion, which would make him the world's richest person by more than $20 billion. Those claim checks that will be given back to society continue to compound.
