BANGALORE, March 22 (Reuters) - Billionaire investor Warren Buffett on Tuesday said the crisis in Japan would not stop growth in the world economy.

Buffett in South Korea on Monday said Berkshire Hathaway, which at the year-end was sitting on $38 billion of cash equivalents and last week bought U.S. specialty chemicals maker Lubrizol for $9 billion, was looking for more large-scale acquisitions anywhere in the world.
