KISSIMMEE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — “‘In the Business World, the Rear-View Mirror is Always Clearer than the Windshield’–Warren Buffett; MHVille Leader Showcases Efforts to Renew American Dream; plus Sunday Weekly Headlines Recap” said the headline on MHProNews on 10.16.2017. The article opened with the following factual points. “Some of the wealthiest men in the world and some of the biggest corporate interests in the U.S. have big, manufactured housing industry and/or land-lease manufactured home communities (MHCs) investments. The names are many, but to spotlight a few are the following.
• Warren Buffett, via Berkshire Hathaway (BRK).
• William “Bill” Gates III, a large stockholder in BRK and whose Gates Foundation also has a big stake in Berkshire Hathaway. BRK shares means Clayton Homes, 21st Mortgage Corporation, Vanderbilt Mortgage and Finance, Shaw, and a host of other firms that have some level of direct manufactured housing interests.
• BlackStone has assets under management (AUM) of some $880.9 billion USD, says left-leaning Wikipedia.
• BlackRock has $10 Trillion in AUM, says Wikipedia.
Berkshire Hathaway has among its wholly owned subsidiaries Clayton Homes, 21st Mortgage Corporation, and Vanderbilt Mortgage and Finance (VMF). These firms have been the subject of several federal and mainstream media reports, as well as probes provided by MHProNews and MHLivingNews.
“When some of the wealthiest people and [biggest] corporate interests in the U.S…have billions to trillions of dollars at their disposal, they should be able to achieve all sorts of impressive outcomes,” noted the Sunday weekly recap of the headline reports with commentary on the Daily Business News on MHProNews. “So, given that they [i.e.: some of the deepest pockets in the U.S.] are already invested in manufactured housing, and [because] there is a need for millions of new housing units in America, and keeping in mind that [conventional housing] builders can’t catch up, why aren’t those billionaires or deep pocket corporations” doing more in “manufactured home production, developing, marketing, public relations, lobbying, legal efforts, etc.?”
That fascinating fact-packed report and related commentary probes those questions. That article is found at this link below.
