How many millionaires do you know who have become wealthy by investing in stocks, bonds, mutual funds or savings accounts? Income property is the most historically proven asset class in America, if not the entire world. I rest my case.

I should have considered it wrong to have finished the Frieze before the room for its accommodation and the funds for its completion were available.

I don’t go to the federal government and say, ‘Fund my program.’
I’m proud to have opened [two] schools in Africa and one in Jamaica [through the Serena Williams Fund and its partners]. I was given a lot. I was given two parents.

I think the idea that the hedge fund manager gets lower taxes than the taxi driver or the physics professor is insane. The legislators who leave that policy in place are derelict in their duties to be rational and fair. There are plenty of them in both political parties. It’s totally outrageous.
Government can run and fund programs, but it can’t love, it can’t show compassion, and it can’t embrace. Our faith is designed to have social implications, not just heavenly ones. The spiritual and the social must be connected.

We spend to pretend that we’re upper class. And when the dust clears – when bankruptcy hits or a family member bails us out of our stupidity – there’s nothing left over. Nothing for the kids’ college tuition, no investment to grow our wealth, no rainy-day fund if someone loses her job.

I am confident, however old-fashioned this may sound, that funds left in the hands of the public will come into the Exchequer with interest at the time in the future when we need them.
The fact that we’re going through a crisis is an opportunity for Europe to be more coordinated and more integrated. We’re actually talking about a European Monetary Fund or euro bonds, about guarantees for countries, about economic governance in the European Union. That shows the strength of Europe.

Bernie Sanders is like those liberal members of the German National Socialist Party during the WWII, or of the Italian Fascist movement during Mussolini. They’d do much for their own workers and peasants, socially… as long as funds were flowing in from the countries plundered by their imperialism.
I’m a global ambassador for the World Wildlife Fund and United for Wildlife and I am also a Unicef UK ambassador. It’s important to me to support charities. I never want to take my wealth for granted.

My grandson is mad at me. He’s mad at me because I squandered his college fund on Spanx. It’s a lot, but there’s a lot going on here.

Sure, President Bush can say that the U.S. government won’t fund stem cell research, but believe me, Japan is applauding. Because they will just do it first and get all the patents.
My experience may be different than theirs, readers can identify with trying to save for retirement or their own kid’s college fund. In truth, the name of the column, “The Color of Money,” has less to do with my race than the fact that the color of money is green and it’s green we all need to live a good life.
It’s always an honor to work with the Twins Community Fund and be a part of all the good that they do. They help people in so many ways. To be part of not only a baseball team, but being a part of something where you’re helping people who need help, that’s what life is all about really.
In reality, Senator Shelby’s Financial Regulatory Improvement Act is nothing more than a wish list for the Wall Street bankers that fund his campaign.
The CSSF and Prosperity Fund are making lives better, both at home and abroad.
Well, I was getting a lot of money then, and I wasn’t getting any Hollywood films, so I just did those. I’d always do a play in between. Whenever I ran low on funds, I’d always rush off to do a movie somewhere.
As for the criticism we receive, you know, even Mr. [Donald] Trump’s team criticize us. For instance, one of the participants or members of his team claimed that Russia was giving money to the Clintons through some funds and that in fact Russia is controlling the Clinton family. This is nonsense.
Hillary Clinton would say I’m going to fund a program that will find the local, you know, industrial or manufacturing jobs that are available and train you to do that job. And then you’re going to get that job. And it’s a much more of a nuts and bolts sort of policy vision.
They have two aspects. One is that they’re unpredictable, and that often rich and more affluent households are slow to spend the funds. The other thing about tax cuts is that they’re redistributive. So they tend, naturally, to benefit those who pay tax.
The mere state of being without funds is a neutral fact constitutionally an irrelevance, like race, creed, or color.
We understand the need to balance our short- and longer-term needs because our revenue is the engine that funds all our innovation. But over time, our emerging high-usage products will likely generate significant new revenue streams for Google as well as for our partners, just as search does today.
I invest in funds myself even though I run my own fund for my daughters.
Among my greatest disappointments about the mutual fund industry – in addition to excessive costs and excessive focus on the short-term – is that fund managers have been passive participants in corporate governance.

I’ve been fighting amidst a lot of opposition from both Hillary Clinton as well as some Republicans who wanted to send arms to the allies of ISIS. ISIS rides around in a billion dollars worth of U.S. Humvees. It’s a disgrace. We’ve got to stop – we shouldn’t fund our enemies, for goodness sakes.
Education should be a right, not a privilege. We need a revolution in the way that the United States funds higher education.
The President’s call for more math and science students is not being heeded by his party’s leaders in Congress. They are cutting over $10 billion from student aide while refusing to fully fund No Child Left Behind. Something doesn’t add up.
The reason I bought the Tesla was to help fund the Model S – and because I like things that are fast, sexy and high-tech.
It’s bad enough that you have to take market risk. Only a fool takes on the additional risk of doing yet more damage by failing to diversify properly with his or her nest egg. Avoid the problem-buy a well-run index fund and own the whole market.

All of the legal defense funds out there, they’re looking for people out there with court of appeals experience, because court of appeals is where policy is made. And I know, I know this is on tape and I should never say that because we don’t make law, I know. I know.
I just kept telling myself that ultimately, the money that my grandparents had put away to go into my college fund, that they were investing for me to go to school and get this education, it had to be worth something.

If you look back historically at the post-WWII period on average, if you get a 100-basis-point increase in Fed funds, the spillover to the ten-year is only 35 basis points, and 25 basis points into the 30-year – it’s a fairly small spillover effect.

I worry about whether SBA programs are still doing what they are meant to do – support lenders who fund good business startups and good expansion plans.

The Crystal Cathedral Ministries, the assets and the buildings, would still be in the hands of the ministries if my father would have simply walked away.

When you’re fundraising for a venture fund, you’re supposed to not talk.

Brokerage firms don’t sell customers stock so much as they sell those horrible mutual funds
I squatted for most of my adult life. I’m not condoning squatting; it was just the only way I could do what I wanted to do. I didn’t have, you know, a trust fund or parents that could help out.
But with a rate of return of 1.6 percent or less, or a negative rate of return, our children and our grandchildren, if we do not make changes, will in fact not have a secure retirement. Indeed, they will not have the funds when they go to retire to even minimally get by.

Funding for women’s healthcare must actually go to fund women’s healthcare, not to line the coffers of an organization under increased scrutiny for reprehensible, inhumane behavior.
Most firms are hierarchical in nature, with everyone getting different slices of the economic pie. The problem is those slices are negotiated every time a firm raises a new fund, so in between funds, which is most of the time, the partners are trying to outgun one another to make a stronger case for themselves.
There’s obviously nothing wrong with selling your art – only an idiot with a trust fund would tell you otherwise. But it’s confusing to know how far you should take it.

It is time for the general fund to pay the Social Security fund back.
An essential point in the social philosophy of interventionism is the existence of an inexhaustible fund which can be squeezed forever. The whole system of interventionism collapses when the fountain is drained off: The Santa Clause principle liquidates itself.

Being in the public eye is part of what I do, and taking on a multitude of different projects – television, radio, fashion, writing or deep-sea diving – is a blessing. It is also how I pay my bills and fund my own skating, as I don’t have a sponsor or financial help from my federation.
The United States is the most innovative country in the world. But our leadership could slip away if we fail to properly fund primary, secondary and higher education.

I only wish I had more time for fund raising.

The Crime Victims Fund is distributed to service providers who assist millions of crime victims annually throughout our communities in a host of ways. It is paid for by fines levied on criminals, not taxpayers.
Until the 1980s, candidates spent a fraction of their time talking to donors; just a few weeks a year, a little more right before an election.

The big advantage that we have as a venture capital firm over a hedge fund or a mutual fund is we have a 13-year lockup on our money.

I’m making a case against how money managers are handling customers’ money. The objective of the customer is not being met if the fund managers are diversifying their assets into hundreds of businesses. If they do this, they are typically performing close to the indexes. But that’s not the way wealth is created.
We’re looking to identify funds if we can. We’re also looking at other resources to assist the government in making this a reality, … At this point, we don’t have a particular source of funding for that but we’re still looking if we could help in finding another way to assist.

Processions, cavalcades, and all that fund of gay frippery, furnished out by tailors, barbers, and tire-women, mechanically influence the mind into veneration; an emperor in his nightcap would not meet with half the respect of an emperor with a crown.
A lot of our fiscal deficit went to fund consumption and really did not get used to build investment and infrastructure. The trouble is, you can get a spurt in GDP growth, which may not be sustainable. I would much rather build the gradient of a long-term marathon.
Don’t go into any store that features shopping bags that can stand on their own accord in the middle of a table. This sort of shopping bag denotes prices that will start chipping into your children’s college education fund. Avoid it.

In Europe, where we have all these different forms of financing and cultural funds and systems like that, it’s a good mixture of supporting artists to make movies.

One reason George Soros has been able to be so active in the political arena is that he has received a considerable amount of our tax dollars to fund his activities.

The principal role of the mutual fund is to serve its investors.
All the bullets and all the bombs that explode all over the world won’t leave the impact, when all is said and done, of a dollar bill dropped in the Jimmy Fund pot by a warm heart and a willing hand.

It is my greatest wish that the ChildrenвЂ™s Fund should continue to be a beacon of hope and light.

And have all the same access and all the same interactions with that congressman.

I do not use short selling. The fund has not shorted a stock since the 2002 to 2003 time frame. At that time I did short three stocks, on which I broke even on two and made money on one of them. The experience taught me that I was not going to be using short selling going forward for a slew of reasons.

One of the things that I realize is that if you look at big business, I mean, they – and what they fund and what they do, they don’t really – they don’t fund the small non-profit community-based organizations that really are out there on the front lines helping people. They fund the big philanthropies. They’re safe.

The average hedge fund manager is going to earn zero per cent in extra return.

At the same time that Donald Trump was facing a federal discrimination lawsuit for refusing to rent to minority families, Hillary Clinton risked her own safety to seek out the truth, to comfort the afflicted, and to make a home for justice where there was none.

had two smaller scripts that I had written with full black casts. And people loved the scripts, but nobody would fund them. Those roles and stories are out there. But unless you have the money to finance movies on your own, you’re beholden to others, and that is a very big limiting factor.
It’s clear to me when you do private equity well, you’re making companies more efficient and helping them grow and become more profitable. That success means our investors – such as public pension funds – benefit, which contributes to the economic wealth of society.
