Vail Daily letter: Can’t save our way there
Vail, CO, Colorado
When I got back from the war (I was born into the poor side of the family), I asked my rich uncle, “What should I do? How do I get ahead?”
Aside from the usual bromides (get an education, make the buffalo scream), he told me that one way to get ahead was to buy when it was cloudy. Over the next few weeks or months, many of us will be asked for our support and our votes as we consider some large real estate developments such as Steadman-Philippon in Vail and RED in Eagle.
My uncle also told me that no one ever saved their way to wealth.
