www.jimrogers.com Although not born to wealth, the author sure has taken up the cause of the one percenters, if there is such a thing? Not too many of us get to Oxford, or start with a reputable New York firm. Generalities abound, in this easy read, no references, yet we are expected to give credence to his beliefs, pronouncments etc.
He actively desparages America, and tells all, he is moving to Singapore (yet keeps a job at Columbia U.) -- Singapore is one of the most perverse nanay states known, with a represive, gallows using government focused on drivbing young people out of the island nation.....but lots of free stuff for this capitalist?
Entertaining at least. There's something for everyone; Liberal Arts grads will like his treatment of studies in philosophy and history, Politicians might not like him at all,
The skeptical reader is best left reading something else.
