The Affluent Gain Access to ‘Special’ Information

If you were starting a business venture, it would sure be nice to see what terms competitors had with their leases and investors.

A close friend who is in the 1% gains access to information that the non-1% don’t just by the relationships he keeps.

It’s not always clear if the information is above- or below-the-table but, regardless, it’s an advantage that he has that others may not have.

Maybe he believes he is entitled to the information because he believes others use the same methods to gain such information and thus he would be at a competitive disadvantage.

I don’t think he would be comfortable discussing this in an objective manner or I would find out.
