The Year was 1923….
I just read this at Rense’s:
- In 1923, who was:
- 1. President of the largest steel company?
- 2. President of the largest gas company?
- 3. President of the New York stock Exchange?
- 4. Greatest wheat speculator?
- 5. President of the Bank of International Settlement?
- 6. Great Bear of Wall Street?
- These men were considered some of the world’s most powerful and successful of their days.
- Now, 80+ years later…here they are and here is what ultimately became of them
- The Answers
- 1. The president of the largest steel company.
- Charles Schwab, died a pauper.
- 2. The president of the largest gas company,
- Edward Hopson, went insane.
- 3. The president of the NYSE,
- Richard Whitney, was released from prison to die at home.
- 4. The greatest wheat speculator,
- Arthur Cooger, died abroad, penniless.
- 5. The president of The Bank of International Settlement,
- Leon Fraser, shot himself.
- 6 The Great Bear of Wall Street,
- Cosabee Livermore, also committed suicide
- However, in that same year, 1923, the PGA Champion
- And the winner of the most important golf tournament,
- The US Open was Gene Sarazen.
- What became of him?
- He played golf until he was 92,
- Died in 1999 at the age of 95.
- He was financially secure
- At the time of his death.
- The Moral:
- Screw work.
- Play golf.
But the moral is quite mistaken. It should not read ‘Screw Work’.
It should read: Screw Evil.
