    We are truly a nation where you can start with only an idea and then find yourself on Forbes 400 List of richest people in America. It takes patience, commitment, skill and some luck. Most of all it takes an understand of what wealth truly is and it's not just the Benjamins; it's about delivering value, it's about making money work for you instead of working for money

    It should be studied in our schools starting in elementary school. Our students should go out and meet their local business people and talk to them.

    "The Richest Man in Babylon" should be required reading along with any number of other books on the topic of wealth accumulation.

    Study it, emulate it, be it!

    I think all the class warfare crap coming from the democrats is counterproductive. We should encourage those who want to get rich, and provide opportunities to do so by creating more competition and an atmosphere that is more conducive to investment and business startups.
