Clearly people don't get it. If you know that you expect to
live 150 years, you park $1000 in a Swiss bank account at the
age of 20 and then start living off the interest at the age of 100.

Getting rich doesn't require being smarter than the markets.
It simply requires waiting long enough.

(Don't hassle me about the fact that Swiss interest rates
may be below the rate of inflation in some places -- I think
you get the general idea(!))
