Hello, dear reader - what's money to you?

On SEBASTIAN MARSHALL

Louis Savilli asks in the comments -

Interesting and timely topic for me personally. Here’s my question to those who already make $10,000, $100,000, or $1,000,000 per month:

What is money? What can you tell me about it and how you feel about it? How have your opinions and feelings on money changed over the years? Going further – have you always felt comfortable exchanging your services for money? For relatively large amounts of money?

Some of these questions are more about self-worth and your own opinion on the value you can provide. I’d love to hear some answers!

I like running a site that's unapologetically pro-wealth, pro-ambition, pro-building, pro-doing, pro-excellence... we wind up meeting getting into lots of good discussions and I've met lots of great people.

The Injustice of Mass Incarceration

On Imported Blog

The United States contains roughly 5% of the world's population. Yet, they contain 25% of the world's prison population.

I'll let you read that again.

That's right, the United States puts people into prison 5 times more on average. So what? I want to talk about the economic devastations this causes (though moral duty itself should force us to examine the problem in my opinion).

The amount of money spent in order to keep an inmate imprisoned is higher than the cost to educate an elementary or secondary student in every state. New York spends under $20,000 per student per year. For inmates? Almost $60,000. And people wonder why our economy is screwed up. This statistic is not unique for New York. The average state spends three to four times more on keeping prisoners behind bars than giving a child an education.
