Money Does Not Equal Merit


I could be a bank-robber having “made” lots of money and then go be a venture capitalist on Sand Hill Road entrepreneurs will fawning over. For clarity, I am not, but you get my point. Or I could be a country with a lot of money derived from modern-day slavery and enthrall the world with my grandiose economic wherewithal. Must I go on?

Just because you have made money some way some how does not mean you comprehend the merit of risk associated with the foresight to break the norm. Ergo: who you give or get money from matters, money merely being the invocation of trust in the alignment of foresight between the two parties in question.
