    Can wealth be destroyed or merely transferred?

    For example if the stock market crashes, and billions or trillions vanish does wealth simply vanish or is just transferred from one hand to another. For example wealth is created in a bull market for person A and wealth is lost in a bear market for person B so its essentially equal? Is that...

    Attaining Wealth

    Been thinking about this lately, after reading Killing Fairfax and seeing the Clive Palmer story on ABC I combine that with what I saw as an agent and looking at Palmer, James Packer and Laughlin Murdoch I can see it requires a degree of abandonment of all fear. The developers I worked with...

    My views on Business Property and in regard to this topic of Trading are I have found more radical than most. My own view is that a very high ratio of wealth accumulators will operate within their comfort zone---which is a great deal lower than even they expect. Warm and fuzzy is good but you...
