Great people are the second most valuable asset

Second only to time, great people are the most valuable asset in life. If you have both great people and time, anything is possible.

Many philosophers mistakenly cite money and power as life’s most valuable assets. They are wrong. Great people can always figure out how to obtain money and power, even if they start with none. On the other hand, you can provide mediocre people with any amount of money and power, and, given enough time, they will lose it.┬áTherefore, the┬ápath to money and power is via human capital.
