No regrets, no empathy, no thought of the poor or others they might hurt… just greed and more money.

The choice is caring about your neighbour or caring about who has access to the beach you already feel is also your property … just who is surprised which path was taken. He will not be happy until “his” beach is privatized and he can fence it all in.

Probably more than market, but not by that much for oceanfront in the Hamptons. Might be blocking more than just ocean access, also ability to combine properties in future. Kind of like Monopoly, buy it when you land on it so you can deal later.

NOt sure if it was known at the time, but the bonds voted against Ecuador were mostly borrowed from the repo market (not by Helie!), some of which were actually owned by Ecuador’s public banks! Good to see Helie hasn’t lost his edge after all these years…
