Maybe the Rich Should Fight Back

I just got an interesting note. This would be an interesting thing to discuss if I can remember it tomorrow. The note said, “Maybe the rich should fight back. Maybe the rich should fight back,” and I wrote back, “No, it’s not gonna happen. There is no way.” I remember Andy Grove who used to run Intel back in 1994 on This Week with Brinkley. Clinton wanted to limit CEO salaries, at least deductibility of a CEO salary, at a million dollars. They asked him what he thought of it and he said, “I’m not gonna get into these social things, David. I’m not here to talk about it.” The rich are never gonna stand up and defend themselves. It’s never gonna happen. A, they don’t want you to know who they are. B, there’s no winning. (laughing) There’s no winning it.
