I hope there are many readers of my blog who are fans of Ayn Rand. She surely made a whole generation think about money in a more positive light. Of course agreeing with her philosophy of the ‘Art of Selfishness’ is difficult, it is at least a thought.
I do not know whether I am being old fashioned, but it is difficult to see the ‘packagers’ and fixers earning much more than the people who are creating the product. Of course it is the markets which decide whether Lalit Modi should earn more than Sachin Tendulkar, but just because you are a fixer name Jitendra Singh and you find the head of the medical council for fixing you cannot have 4 Mercedes Benz, …and other luxury items worth a few crores in your house. Come on, very few doctors in the country can afford one Merc! MBA education, Financial literacy, becoming a doctor,….need some rating system and the government to just go away from these fields taking their subsidy along with them. Let people pay and get good stuff. Last week I had dinner with a person who is waiting to sell a huge college with lots of land in prime Mumbai. At the price that people are willing to buy it, the fee for becoming a doctor will have to be $ 100,000 + ….so start preparing to pay high fees for your medical requirements!!
Her piece ‘So you think money is the cause of all evil?………..and the few pages following that are of course a classic.
Here I found a link for those fans…and those who are too …..to read the whole book….
