I read the book “The Big Time”. It is about the Harvard graduating class of ’49. These are the guys we always wonder about – JNJ CEO, Xerox CEO, Sheraton Hotels President, etc. They took the helm of influencial companies we all buy stocks about. It talks about the thoughts of these great guys. For example – unions, addicted to automatic cost-of-living raises but disaddicted to productivity, were stupidly and shortsightedly bleeding industry dry. My thought, should we talk about “Ask not how much the industry can pay you, ask what we can contribute to the industry?”

For FT, it is noted in the book that 25% of the Harvard 49er were worth 1MM in 25 years.
