On creating value -- Nick Hanauer

One of the most inspiring philosophies I’ve read in a long time, Nick Hanauer’s article on
pro-tax arguments from a venture capitalist (http://www.techflash.com/seattle/2010/11/nick-
hanauer.html) actually gave me another reason to be proud about being from Seattle! Here are
some stand-out quotes from Nick’s article:

It is your capacity to organize investments to create increasing returns that define your success


It is strategic, aggressive investment ...in things that create increasing returns that produce winners


if you are a low functioning contrarian you are in prison. And there is a very fine line.


rich people have a capacity to take a step backwards today for a big, big step forward in the longer-term.
