Accounting as a business language

It's no wonder that accounting is often referred to as the language of business, as the financial records and accounting reports tell the story of how a company is doing financially. Warren Buffet, American business magnate, investor, the chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway coined the phrase "accounting is the language of business" as he gave advice to a 17-year-old investment intern during a CNBC interview and phone call. Buffet counselled the young man to study accounting language because it was the best way to learn how to read financial statements. As with any foreign language, Buffet suggested it takes time to get all the basics down and integrated into one's understanding and usage but is ultimately the main factor toward success in the business world.
