It's like someone is still writing episodes of Silicon Valley, but slipping them to the news desk instead of the studio.

Oh god, Bill no. Can't you come up with something else? And after all these years and across the great divide. That really is just a larger copy of what Steve Job's designed with Feadship. Complete with the in the bow owners  stateroom and library which Jobs was the first to try to do. Stupid idea, absolutely the worst place to be on that particular long narrow boat when underway in even small waves with the pitching moment. No one goes up there.

Silliest thing, looks like a god damn iphone box. Though those electronically controlled sea worthy glass walls are pretty damn cool. And cost more than what 4 generations of my family will ever think to earn. It is clear that Job's wife loves her well drilled Brit crew including 16 very active young men who move with martial precision in everything they do.

Well all in all it is not so bad, these plutocrats at play could be getting up to something worse.

Like writing books for your children.

He says he wrote the book because friends said they wanted it for their kids. It’s hard to see pajama-clad children clamoring for Principles (“Daddy, is there a follow-up on compound interest?”) but the original Principles has sold over a million copies and been downloaded 3 million times, so who knows? Kids these days!

“When we get into an environment of demonizing people or stereotyping people. It’s like if you call a leader, a billionaire, evil … it’s almost like saying you’re a poor person, then that’s evil or you’re a Jew or a black person, and that’s evil. I think demonizing a category of people is a very bad thing,” he says.

If we are to find a way out of this mess, he says, it’ll be “with the collective involvement of people who bring not only different perspectives, but different skills to bear” on the problems.

“This engineering exercise has got to be done with skill so that there’s a redistribution of opportunity and a redistribution so that productivity is increased,” he says. “Generally speaking, the capitalists focus on increasing the size of the pie, but not on dividing it well. Socialists focus more on dividing it well, not on how to increase its size.

...“I’ll tell you what the fear is. It’s not that they will be taxed more. That’s interesting, because I think most people think that that’s their main fear. The main fear is that the system of making productivity work will be hurt,” he says.

...Theirs is that old, radically conservative, message: everything must change so that everything can stay the same. The question now is whether the system that produced Dalio, his principles and peers can survive the world they created. And if not, what comes after?

Who cares if his kids get fucked? Not the child minders and fixers who'll tie their shoes until they retire after gradual school.

Opps...

Last thing I heard about the Gates family is that they were building one of those uber-wealthy underground safe houses.

Why does every movie (and the uber rich) think that the help will stick around in the case of SHTF? Full security details, repair and cleaning teams, the nannies. They all have family too and if history is any teacher, they are the first to turn on their masters because they already know where the good stuff is.
