Bitch-slapped by the invisible hand: “Those who don’t make money never become philanthropists.”

Demi-billionaire Robert W. Wilson to billionaire Bill Gates:

When I talk to young people who seem destined for great success, I tell them to forget about charities and giving. Concentrate on your family and getting rich—which I found very hard work. I personally and the world at large are very glad you were more interested in computer software than the underprivileged when you were young. And don’t forget that those who don’t make money never become philanthropists.
