MORE MONEY, MORE PROBLEMS
By Led Black
It’s funny, because for those of us who aren’t wealthy, we think that money is the answer to all of our problems, but in actuality wealth also begets its own set of issues and complications. Case in the point: the interesting New York magazine article on the Aoki family. Rocky Aoki is the founder of the famous Benihana chain of Japanese restaurants. Mr. Aoki is a millionaire many times over but the recent taking of a somewhat younger wife has created a rift with his other children. Rocky and some of his kids are barely on speaking terms and he is actually suing a handful of them. Check it out here: www.nymag.com. There is another compelling article in New York Magazine about a young Hispanic father and how he barely ekes out a living on $10 an hour. The piece is definitely worth a read.
