Forbes article: Super Rich and Super Cheap

Quote:
Indian billionaire Azim Premji made his $17.1 billion fortune through tech-services giant Wipro. Despite being one of Asia's richest men, Premji drives a Toyota Corolla, flies coach and stays in company guest houses instead of five-star hotels when traveling on business. He even served food on paper plates at a lunch honoring his son's wedding.
ABC News: Super Rich and Super Cheap

A fun article with no real content.

Old habits are hard to break.
I'm forecasting that I'll be leaving some money on the table when I leave this game. It isn't that I really want to but then again I don't know how I would want to change my life not to have any money at the end. So I'll be leaving it to some charities.

Agreed about spending down one's wealth A bit off topic but I am noticing more and more westerners throwing money around and over tipping here in the Kingdom of Thailand. Some morons are even tipping the clerks at the ubiquitious 7-11 stores here. Most of these guys are "two week millionaires" that probably aren't that well off financially speaking. Sure, its their money but I doubt that most of them will ER anytime soon
