An idea for the Real-Estate investor:
Why not, now and then shed it all
To the benefit of the simple
And start again.
Several times, I have seen an ad.
The investor in the ad
Boasts of how The Discovery Channel
Challenged him to remake his fortune
In a new city with no credit, no contacts, no money, no lifelines.
They gave him 90 days. Or was it 30? I don't remember.
And he did it. Isn't that amazing?!
At the end of the challenge,
He had a five-million-dollar business, or was it 15?
I can't remember.
Now, what if he had then liquidated that business,
Stripped himself down to nothing,
Lived a few days or weeks with the poor,
And then did it all again?
But instead of storing the money he earned in the bank,
What if he had then used that five or fifteen million
To purchase super simple, mortgage-free, homes
For people who either don't have a place to live,
Or who desire to exit the housing racket
And live within their means.
Of course, to do such a thing, he would have to accept
That he is putting himself out of a job.
For, sooner or later, such an idea
Would bring down the market.
It would change the culture.
It would rock the world.
