    Kind of people who think their time is money on all conditions and will race you to the finish line of death and claim victory when they die with the most money. A unique way of keeping books in my mind.

    It’s worth more to have the kid be someone else’s problem.

    Steve Jobs did that.
    After he returned to Apple in 1997, he disbanded ALL charitable donation programs that had been created. He cared about himself, his money, and that was it.
    Bill Gates, on the other hand, would be twice as rich today, if he hadn’t been giving away 28 BILLION dollars over 20 years.

    This is a year old article, but not surprising is the content:
    Unlike fellow tech leaders Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook, he did not sign the Giving Pledge, the effort under which the nation’s richest individuals commit to giving at least half their wealth to philanthropy.

    His name is absent from the list of gifts of $1 million or more maintained by Indiana University’s Center on Philanthropy.

    The … debate began after the New York Times published an unflattering piece in August 2011, stating “there is no public record of Mr. Jobs giving money to charity. … Nor is there a hospital wing or an academic building with his name on it.”

    Moreover, Jobs had closed Apple’s philanthropic programs when he returned to the company in 1997 and never reinstated them despite $14 billion in profit last year, the Times reported.

    Steve Jobs isn’t a person to emulate.
