“You can preserve wealth in a country that doesn’t respect it.” — Eric Baldwin, Forbes Writer, in an article”Smart Money Strategies For Obama 2.0″ that he wrote at http://www.forbes.com/sites/baldwin/2012/11/26/smart-money-strategies-for-obama-2-0/
Do you feel that we live in a country that doesn’t respect wealth? (and why) Do you disagree? (and why) What does being wealthy or successful look like to you?
Personally, I agree with his comment. For many, many years, I’ve noticed that as much as we strive for success, and for most of us wealth is a part of that success, it seems that as soon as someone or a company becomes “successful” people look to “chew them down”.
