A short quiz & some observations…

Do you know who, in 1923 was:

1. President of the largest steel company?

2. President of the largest gas company?

3. President of the New York Stock Exchange?

4. Greatest wheat speculator?

5. President of the Bank International Settlement?

6. Great Bear of Wall Street?

These men should have been considered some of the world’s most successful men. At least, they found the secret of making money. Now almost 80 years later, do you know what became of these men?

1. The president of the largest steel company, Charles Schwab, died a pauper.

2. The president of the largest gas company, Edward Hopson, went insane.

3. The president of the NYSE, Richard Whitney, was released from prison to die at home.

4. The greatest wheat speculator, Arthur Cooger, died abroad, penniless.

5. The president of the Bank of International Settlement shot himself.

6. The Great Bear of Wall Street, Cosabee Livermore, committed suicide.

In that same year, 1923, the winner of the most important golf championship, Gene Sarazan, won both the US Open and PGA Championship. He died in 1999 at the age of 95, played golf until he was 92, and was financially solvent at his death.

Conclusion: Stop worrying about business and other bullshit and start playing golf.
