To My Social Justice Fundraising Friends on Raising Money from the Rich
"What's Wealth Got to Do with it?"

Breakaway Wealth

The Washington Post on "Breakaway Wealth," how wealth gaps are increasing, and with them a growing alliance between wealth and political power, to the detriment in my opinion of all concerned. Chile under Pinochet, Russia under the Oligarchs, these were the result of Chicago Economics, operating with words like Freedom, to mean laizzez faire capitalism. I do not want to live in such a country, nor do most wealthy people. I have noticed that increasingly popular topics for wealth planning conferences are kidnap Insurance and personal protection services, like bodyguards and bullet proof cars. Is this the good life as we imagine it?
