Warren Buffett's company cut its projected rate of return for its corporate pension plans to 6.5% for 2001, from 8.3% in 2000 ... And unless the stock market starts turning in regular double-digit quarterly gains in the next few months, it looks like other U.S. companies will have to follow Berkshire's lead.
