Andrew Carneigie was undoubtedly one of the wealthiest
people to ever live. He earned his wealth in steal with the
philosophy of cutting workers wages to make most of his
profits. The other way was to create a monopoly by running
almost every other steal mill out of business. The way he
did that was by buying his own train, ore factories, and
ships. No other steal manufacturer had this kind of setup
so consequentially they could not compete with Andrew
Carneigie's low prices per ton of steal.
After Carneigie was making millions he had the need to
build libraries all across America. That was one of the
ways he gave some of his wealth back to the working people.
After he sold his business J.P. Morgan he had so much money
he started a foundation that gave away his money for him.
That foundation is still giving away money today and will
never run out.
I think the rich should help out their communities to make
it a better place simply because they can. A lot of people
live comfortably without any financial worries but don't
have the kind of money to start donating it like it's
water. That is why I think the wealthy people who have an
abundance of money pilled up in the bank should put it to a
god cause and help out other people in need.
Bill Gates is the wealthiest man alive right now. I don't
think he is starting a monopoly instead giving other
software designers an opportunity to make better software.
Companies like Corel and Adobe are not about to go out of
business because they feed off of Bill Gate's Windows 95
and Windows NT to make better products as the world of
Windows expands. Bill Gates makes exceptional products that
everybody seems to like. That is not his fault but the
fault of other companies for not making a more likable
product. Or is that not true and he advertises his products
much much better for instance putting his products in
almost every new PC on the market.
I think it is everyone's dream to become "rich quick" by
winning the Lottery or Publisher's Clearing House but nine
times out of ten that is not going to happen. You have to
find a good job that makes a lot of money and you enjoy
doing it everyday. If I were to become rich I would
probably donate money to charities and foundations to help
the people in need that have nothing at all let alone
anything they can give to help someone out.
