Freedom to Choose

In 1923 a very important meeting was held at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago ..
Attending this meeting were nine of the world's most successful men ..
at least .. they were men who had found the secret of "making money"
Let us see what happened to these men twenty-five years later

The president of the largest independent steel company .. Charles Schwab
died in bankruptcy and lived on borrowed money for five years before his death . . . . The president of the greatest utility company .. Samuel Insull
died a fugitive from justice .. and penniless in a foreign land . . . . The president of the largest gas company .. Howard Hopson
lost his sanity . . . . The greatest wheat speculator .. Arthur Cotton .. died abroad insolvent . . . . The president of the New York Stock Exchange .. Richard Whitney .. was released from Sing Sing Penitentiary . . . . The member of the president's cabinet .. Albert Fall .. was pardoned so he could die at home . . . . The greatest "Bear" on Wall Street .. Jesse Livermore .. died a suicide . . . . The head of the greatest monopoly .. Ivar Krueger .. died a suicide . . . . The president of the Bank of International Settlements .. Leon Fraser .. died a suicide

All those men chose to learn the art of making a living .. but none of them chose to learn HOW TO LIVE
