When confronted with a huge mass of verbage from Sheldon Drobny, how does one figure out what he's talking about? The last thing you want to do is - like me - try to watch TV and listen to the radio while scanning his latest entry. That means I lost his segue from intriguing topic to next intriguing topic. It went something like this:
I have known for years that a smart wealthy person could keep control of all his assets without estate or income taxes through cleverly structured charitable foundations... The Gates Foundation and the Catholic Church have the same goals... The great problems of the world today are a direct result of the wide disparity between the rich and poor... The governments that keep their people in abject poverty while their leaders are obscenely rich from oil revenues cause many of the problems in the Middle East... The movie was not great but it did emphasize the point I am making in this piece...
The movie? Wasn't he talking about foundations? How'd he get around to the Middle East? Who is he and why is he there?
I do know this: I've read and recommend The Rich and The Super-Rich, and Sheldon is no Ferdinand Lundberg.
