This is sickening. Everything we joke about on the superrich elite turns out to be true. I am all for earning what you deserve but this is unethical behaviour Essentially theft from society as a whole.

One of his best quotes

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.
