Values Alignment and Wealth Health

Continuing with more thoughts on wealth, charity and empathy, here's another great essay on the matter by Michael Lewis, delivered as his commencement speech to his alma mater, Princeton University, in 2012. You can read the transcript here, or watch the speech here. It explores the role of luck in his own career and the lives of other successful people. Those who have both good luck and success, he goes on to say, are obligated to pay it forward. The speech is short and well worth the read.
