Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
Is she single?? She looks kinda hot.Now that is a cunning plan! Go after the rich chick and marry her for her money! It has Equal opportunity written all over it, in fact the ACLU should even pay for the divorce attorneys..
Slippery slope you are on there Captain. Very slippery slope.You are a hair's breadth away from sounding like a liberal crusader entitlement type. (Not to be harsh, but I am a firm believer in tough love.)The complaint that the successful only got there because they were lucky enough to have been: born into money; born with the correct color skin; lived in the good school district, etc... is the cornerstone of every argument for taxing the wealthy out of existence.What I see is an individual that took advantage of opportunities presented to her. If one of those opportunities was to leverage her father's name (and bankroll), than good for her.The article says she is making her business a success where others with an arguably equivalent amount of available cash have failed.On the other hand, it is unfair that thousands of outstanding ideas are outright ignored when yet another Hollywood production company is getting business and news coverage. Of course, life is not fair. And that message never gets less painful, especially when you know that this woman would probably have not gotten off of square one with her business if it were not for her last name.At a minimum, we can take consolation in the fact that she is in fact doing something to earn her money. Her company's name appears on films that are getting into theaters, and are getting industry praise. I know of several trust fund babies that think putting out a CD that no one is listening to is somehow being a contributing member of society.
Great point CBMTTek.Born with a silver spoon in her mouth and didn't end up with it up her nose. Impressive.I on the other hand did a lot of damage with my plastic Spork...
Duly noted, not will I ever slip and claim for an estate tax, I am merely pointing out one of the few flaws of nepotism.
