  1. Agree

  2. That’s a surprisingly good blog post by Mr. Cuban. The best part of it is “When you make a shitload of money. Do something positive with it. If you are smart enough to make it, you will be smart enough to know where to put it to work.” He sounds like a younger version of Warren Buffet.

    There’s nothing wrong with being rich. It just seems like there’s so many of the 1% that get rich by skirting the system, minimizing their taxes, exporting jobs for cheaper labour, and locking their pennies away like Scrooge McDuck that it hides the good people out there that create jobs, support philanthropic foundations, and generally stimulate the growth of economies. It’s sad, but just like with any other good people, the bad people stand out in the mainstream and the great one’s don’t get the recognition they deserve.

  3. Only the treasury makes money, for everyone else, you get money but sucking it up from everyone else. The more money you have, the less money the rest of the community has and for the narcissist, a perfect life where they have total impact upon everyone else’s life and of course every one else just has to shut up and suck it up.
    Greed and democracy, do not go hand in hand, greed is the parasite that corrupts democracy to feed it’s own ego because only greed’s opinion counts and for every one else, zero impact.

  4. “Make a boatload of money. Pay your taxes. Lots of taxes. Hire people. Train people. Pay people. Spend money on rent, equipment, services. Pay more taxes.”

    Nothing wrong in this. But how are you making money? Clearly some guys had the brilliant idea of making boatloads of money by lending “cheap money” and create the ridiculous expectation on a society that was not prepared to pay the price. Those people made a lot; had lot’s of impact and now… here we are… in a limbo.
