In 1923, a group of the world's most successful financiers met at the Edgewater Beach Hotel in Chicago. These tycoons were extremely rich &

altogether they controlled more wealth than there was in the US Treasury. Their success stories were published everywhere inspiring many to follow their fine examples. Just look at who they were:

1. Arthur Cutten - The greatest wheat speculator.

2. Albert Fall - The Secretary of Interior in President Harding's cabinet.

3. Leon Fraser - The president of the Bank of International Settlements.

4. Howard Hopson - The president of the largest gas company.

5. Ivar Kreuger - Head of the world's greatest monopoly.

6. Jesse Livermore - The greatest bear in Wall Street.

7. Charles Schwan - The president of the largest independent steel company.

8. Richard Whitney - The president of the New York Stock Exchange.

But 27 years later in 1948, this was what happened to them:

1. Arthur Cutten died abroad insolvent.

2. The penniless Albert Fall was pardoned from prison so that he could die at home.

3. Leon Fraser commited suicide.

4. Howard Hopson was insane.

5. Ivar Kreuger commited suicide.

6. Jesse Livermore commited suicide.

7. Charles Schwan was bankrupt & had to live on borrowed money the last 5 years of his life before his death.

8. Richard Whitney was recently released from Sing Sing Prison.

A man went to a barber shop to have his hair and his

beard cut as always. He started to have a good

conversation with the barber who attended him. They

talked about so many things and various subjects.

Suddenly, they touched the subject of God.

The barber said: "Look man, I don't believe that God

exists as you say so."

"Why do you say that?" - asked the client.

"Well, it's so easy, you just have to go out in the

street to realize that God does not exist. Oh, tell

me, if God existed, would there be so many sick

people? Would there be abandoned children?" If God

existed, there would be no suffering nor pain. I can't

think of a God who permits all of these things."

The client stopped for a moment thinking, but he

didn't want to respond so as to prevent an argument.

The barber finished his job and the client went out of

the shop. Just after he left the barber shop he saw a

man in the street with a long hair and beard (it

seemed that it had been a long time since he had his

cut and he looked so untidy).

Then the client again entered the barber shop and he

said to the barber: "Know what? Barbers do not exist."

"How come they don't exist?"- asked the barber. "Well,

I am here and I am a barber."

"No!" - the client exclaimed. "They don't exist

because if they did, there would be no people with

long hair and beard like that man who walks in the


"Ah, barbers do exist, what happens is that people do

not come to me."

"Exactly!"- affirmed the client. "That's the point.

God does exist, what happens is people don't go to Him

and do not look for Him; that's why there's so much

pain and suffering in the world."
