The Alchemists

Note to future self…

There seem to be a few groups of people that can generate wealth out of “nothing” in a fashion similar to what alchemists tried to do back in the day. This a spin on an old saying “follow the money”. This begs the question:

Where are the alchemists?

I suspect that they still exists in just a few industries. Namely:

  1. Technology
  2. Finance

In both instances it seems that this group of people can generate wealth from nothing and that is probably one of the purest forms of leverage I’ve seen.

Takeaway: there’s no other takeaway here. Just an appreciation of what’s possible.

Now back to work…
