Cartoon: The One Rich Guy

Do you really think you have to worry about protecting the one rich guy in case you ever become that person? If so, I imagine you might think your avid playing of the lottery is going to get you there.

Rather than the more common belief that you can get rich quickly by using some scheme or other, I have always believed in the investment philosophy of getting rich slowly by trying to get the laws of probability and compound interest to work for me instead of against me.

On second thought, I can’t say I always believed in getting rich slowly. I have had a lapse or two in my life, but they always turned out to be learning experiences about the problems of getting rich quickly.
