    Most likely you became wealthy because you are entitled.

    1) You were born with wealthy parents, the number one way to become wealthy today.

    2) You are an executive of a large corporation. I hate to break it to you, but the value of your labor in no way matches the actual work that you do. You have nothing at risk, if you fail you get a golden parachute into your next executive position. You are an entitled member of a special class; you are a Prince of the corporate world.

    4) You got it by "investing". If the investment sector worked properly there would be small, justifiable  profits for moving capital from where it is not being used to where it is needed. This is not your model. You are making money through theft, essentially stealing money from small investors and retirement funds by manipulating the markets and creating bogus investment vehicles.

    Not surprisingly, being entitled results in craving for more entitlement. You guys just can't get enough. The truth is that the world would get along just fine without this class of entitlement junkies.

      to make social conections to meet people who greased the rails for you. You go to Harvard to meet people. You join a fraternity for the same reason. You make friends and these friendships mean that you appoint each other to jobs meant for the elite which you are a member of because of who you met at Harvard and through you fraternity. And then all you have to do is hold on. How many bankers are out of work today because they are incompent bankers?  No one in finance loses their job because of a bad decision if they know the right people.
