24 people don’t do humility.

Money has four angles, there are money and market, money and moral, money and minute, and money and honey, each angle should be balanced in harmony; otherwise, you life will be artificial poverty, even you have a lot money. .

This is in a series of texts from the textbook I use with my English 12 students.  It’s a wonderful (and relatively brief) addition to the theme of “Chasing Success.”  While I’ve not read any of Mr. Lewis’s books, I now must add them to my to-read list!

Hey, I want to say that don’t thank the ones who lose the chance because of you, thank those developing countries.Your company, your country earn too much money from them. Your choice is right, or you are one of the devils.

Jenifer Vargas · September 13, 2016 at 5:25 am

what’s the claim for the video lol

Ed Saylor · November 12, 2016 at 5:10 pm

The best argument for this rebuttal comes from Aristotle who came up with the following pure logic:

Statement 1: X will occur

Statement 2: X will not occur

One of these statements must be true and the other one must be false. For the sake of argument, let us say that 1 is true and 2 is false. That means that the statement “X will occur” is true. More precisely, statement 1 was ALWAYS true, even before X actually occurred.

A curious thing happens then. If statement 1 was always true, then X was always going to occur. But if X was always going to occur then it is impossible for X not to have occurred. This means that X could not have not occurred. That which cannot not occur must necessarily occur. And so we see that X occurred out of necessity and not because of chance, luck, or human decision.

Now let’s put this in context of Michael Lewis’ speech. Using the above logic, Michael Lewis would sit next to the wife of a big shot at Salomon Brothers which was true even before it took place. And if that statement was true before the event took place, then Michael Lewis was always going to sit next to the wife of the big shot at Salomon Brothers. And that which cannot not happen happens out of necessity. And so it would seem that it was predetermined that Michael Lewis would always sit next to her.

This takes luck completely out of the picture and leaves only fate.
