MF Global’s Debacle

Column by Bob Ingle: Corzine’s public life is over | Asbury Park Press.

Philosophically speaking, this is hard for me to comprehend. Mr. Corzine is just about my age, perhaps a bit older. He lives very well and it is probably correct to say that he had everything, materially.

If he loves risk, he could have taken on parachuting, or car racing, or mine-clearing in Cambodia. Things like that.

The bottom line is that in 10 or 20 years we both will be dead. What is the point of amassing more and more fortune, none of which we can take with us anyway?

I am not religious at all. But in our last moments, the only valuable asset is having the conviction of having done one’s duty. Everything else is idiotic.
