No wonder quality videos like these are churned out time and time again. It is made by a millennial instead of those god-awful stone age videos by the boomers!

Looks like Ivy Leagues are more efficient in managing their wealth than the trillion dollar corporate giants out there.

Mega rich people only give their money away if it is to their benefit. Either through tax breaks or to clean up their public images. Example: 2 of the most hated men in America were Rockefeller and Bill Gates. Through charitable trusts and donations they are now seen as modern day saints.

If the money is truly sitting somewhere accumulating why would they be so concerned about a small tax on investment profits? The way things are currently being handled these endowments sound like the perfect place to launder money, cover ponzi schemes, and hide taxable income.
