Charlie was shorter than most children for his age when he was a child. He was also not very good at sports, so he spent most of his time exercising his mind
In October 1929, Charlie was five years old when the American economy was hit by the Great Depression, which lasted for a decade (the stock market crashed, industrial production fell by 47%, GDP dropped by 30%, the wholesale price index contracted by 33%, unemployment surpassed 20%, and average annual income fell by one third).
During the economic downturn, every member of the family struggled to get a job, and Charlie was no exception. As a teenager, he worked at Buffett & Son, a grocery store owned by Warren Buffett’s grandfather Ernest Buffett. He worked 10 hours a day for $2. However, Charlie and Warren did not formally meet there, Charlie was 6 years older.
At school, Charlie liked to argue with the ideas his teachers pushed. At the age of 12, he showed a great aptitude for mathematics, and at the age of 18, he was admitted to the University of Michigan to study mathematics.
However, his studies did not last long. In early 1943, at the age of 19, he dropped out and joined the US Army Air Corps.
He did well in the army, became a second lieutenant, and when he took the standard army general classification test, he was found to have a very high ‘IQ’.
