  1. Millionaire

    A millionaire is an individual whose net worth or wealth is equal to or exceeds one million units of currency. It can also be a person who owns one million units of currency in a bank account or savings account. Depending on the currency, a certain level of prestige is associated with being a millionaire, which makes that amount of wealth a goal for some, and almost unattainable for others. In countries that use the short scale number naming system, a billionaire is someone who has at least a thousand times a million dollars, euros, or the currency of the given country. In contrast, a billionaire in countries that use the long scale number naming system would be someone who has at least a million times a million units of currency. The increasing number of millionaires is partially due to prevailing economics, especially inflation; as the individual value of each unit of currency decreases, achieving a million of these becomes easier. The purchasing power of a million US dollars in 1959 is equivalent to 7.3 million dollars in 2009. Increasingly, the term denotes the status of high wealth. American sociologist Leonard Beeghley classifies all households with net worth exceeding USD 1 million as "The Rich". As of 2008, there were 10 million people around the globe who are classified as U.S.-dollar millionaires.

  3. Bernie Sanders:

    At a time of massive wealth and income inequality, we need a progressive tax system in this country which is based on ability to pay, it is not acceptable that a number of major profitable corporations have paid zero in federal income taxes in recent years, and that millionaire hedge fund managers often enjoy an effective tax rate which is lower than the truck drivers or nurses.

  4. Michael Moritz:

    Obsessives, those who can not imagine doing anything else with their lives, always find their work more fulfilling than those who find themselves in a profession because it was expected of them or because they did not have a calling that tugged at their emotions, for people like Sir Alex Ferguson, who are obsessed by a pursuit, there is no separation between life and work … It is much easier to endure all the setbacks, reversals and frustrations of management when you deeply enjoy your work. Related : Seth Godin on the Practical Way to Pursue Your Passion( It Does Exist) Obsession is key to overcoming the inevitable setbacks and frustration that come with entrepreneurship. Passion is necessary, but it’s not enough. For example, I once interviewed Chris Gardner, Chris Gardner who Will Smith played in the movie, The Pursuit of Happyness. Chris Gardner was homeless, living with Chris Gardner young son in the bathroom of a train station while pursuing a career as a stock broker. Chris Gardner passed the exam to become a broker, launched Chris Gardner career and became a multi-millionaire. When I asked Chris Gardner for the secret to success, Chris Gardner said.

  5. Bernie Sanders:

    You raise the issue I am a millionaire. Well, actually this year we had $560,000 income, thats a lot of money, and in my case, my wifes case, it came from a book that I wrote. A pretty good book, you might want to read it. Its a best-seller, sold all over the world, and we made money. So, if anyone thinks that I should apologize for writing a best-selling book, Im sorry, Im not going to do it.
