Warren Buffett empties his wallet

Tonight, Piers Morgan asks the second richest man in the world what he carries in his wallet and, as we see, Warren Buffett casually reaches into his back pocket and pulls out a 20-year-old bill-fold.

“Here's my American Express card from 1964,” he says proudly.

Baffled by the fact that he still has the original, green AmEx, Morgan follows up:

"That's the one you've have the whole time?"

Buffett is quick with a quip:

“Yes, well it goes with my cellphone,” he said, referring to his vintage Nokia flip phone.

The billionaire proceeds to pull out family pictures, more credit cards, and a wad of hundred dollar bills which he admitted was “more than usual.”

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Warren Buffett, his son and his grandson, and for an honest and intimate look inside the family's passion for charity and farming, check out Howard G. Buffett's new book, "40 Chances: Finding Hope in a Hungry World."

    I am a freight train engineer for Bnsf railway. I am very proud to have Mr. Buffett as the owner of a company that I work for. It gives me a sense of security and comfort in today's economy, to know that a very down to earth, successful businessman is a an overseer of this.

    When will we as a People become mature enough and wise enough to deal with the underlying issue of all our present economic problesm. Today we do not have Kings and Quees, Monarch or Dictators. Instead we have "Billionaires".
    These elite and very few people run our politics, our Big Companies(including Insurance Companies), control the stock market, technology, and just about everything. Capitalism no longer exists in our country; Monolism does.
    It seems that there are enough educated people that could present positive ways in which the distribution of wealth will
    bring true capitalism back into our cities and towns. Our future looks very dim when we are"entertained" by newscasters and reporters, who all are under the thumb of these Monarchs, and fear for their jobs should they ever
    tell the real stories. Isn't it about time that we as a nation take responsibility for keeping our heads in the sand. Does
    anyone really believe that it's an"ACcident" that the Obama Healthcare website is having such a problem?
    I really don't want to believe that we are this naieve!!!
