I work with a handful of 10x better people.

I do what I can to buy them breakfast burritos and donuts. I know that just the tiniest nudge of productivity on their part will benefit my team immeasurably.

As for billionaires... well, they got lucky. I can appreciate the argument that their reward for their luck is completely and totally outsized compared to the value they added.

But I look at someone like Bezos and Amazon and how many packages show up at our house in any given month and think that we're far from outliers there... and, yeah, Bezos directly benefits my life.

And then I look at ISS, Inc v. Busk and think that the richest guy in the world could have his morality and ethics improved by reading "A Tale Of Two Cities" again. No matter how many lives he has also improved.
