After twenty years in business, I understand the importance of low taxes - but also of investing for the future.
A friend called me up the other day and talked about investing in a dot-com that sells lobsters. Internet lobsters. Where will this end? The next day he sent me a huge package of lobsters on ice. How low can you stoop?
What I'm interested in is investing in people.
One of the very nice things about investing in the stock market is that you learn about all different aspects of the economy. It's your window into a very large world.
Even though there was a very vigorous bull market in the 1950s, it could only attract 6 million investors. It required the growth of a large middle class investing public.

We have an obligation and a responsibility to be investing in our students and our schools. We must make sure that people who have the grades, the desire and the will, but not the money, can still get the best education possible.
I'm investing in a company that has patented wallet technology that will deodorize currency. That way people won't have to deal with money that smells funny.
