The Pirate Pose

"Many of us have pulled off the big coups. Many of us have had the nerve, the aggressiveness, the independence, the heart and stones that being the stones-out Delta commandos of capitalism requires—and have made our billions, our multibillions. So what is our social payoff? How is our stature to be known publicly and celebrated in the form of social prominence, eye-popping reputations, honors, medals, appointments as ambassadors with The Hon. before our names forever after?" —Tom Wolfe on hedge fund managers
