Quotes: An Economy That Rewards Teachers With "Thank-You Notes"

Quotes2My wealth has come from a combination of living in America, some lucky genes, and compound interest …. My being male and white also removed huge obstacles the majority of Americans then faced. ….I’ve worked in an economy that rewards someone who saves the lives of others on a battlefield with a medal, rewards a great teacher with thank-you notes from parents, but rewards those who can detect the mispricing of securities with sums reaching into the billions.

- Warren Buffett in the Washington Post (Zuckerberg, Gates, Buffett and the triumph of competitive philanthropy)
