From time to time we hear about how rich people donate their wealth away. Some donate whole of their wealth, some half and some donate just enough to optimize their tax planning.
Most people would think that the rich has too much, hence they want to give some away since they can't use it anyway. That ... would be 20th century mind set.
The fact is ... the rich who donates, is not only rich, but also smart rich. Whatever they have now, they can continuously have it at anytime. Hence it doesn't really matter if they give anything away tonight, they will have it again tomorrow morning.
That would be the ultimate power of passive income, or smart income.
Once you know how much you 'really' need, you 'find a way' to keep your needs fulfilled without doing anything much. Then whatever extra comes in is the one you can easily donate away without filling any pinch. Yet many will feel much appreciated because it means the whole world to them.
So in short, you can really see which rich man has smart income in him and which rich man is barely surviving with his active income, by seeing the way they donate.
Now, let me ask .... do you think USA rich men is smarter or China's rich men ?
