NEW YORK (Reuters) – Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said the United States could slip into a recession if the jobless rate increases, he told CNBC television on Tuesday.

In a series of interviews throughout the day, Buffett, who built Berkshire Hathaway (BRKa.N) into a $205 billion conglomerate, gave a sobering view of the economy’s prospects, including the assessment that holiday retail sales were not looking good despite a post-Thanksgiving holiday burst.

Consumer spending is seen as a key buffer preventing a weaker U.S. economy from sliding into recession as the housing market continues its free-fall and the banking sector remains challenged by a credit crisis.
