Warren Buffett - P&C industry profits will continue decline over next few years

In a recent business wire presentation from Canada, Warren Buffett said he expected 4points of worsening in combined ratios in 2008 vs 2007.

Buffett expects several years of lower profitability and worsening combined ratios.
