Ed Asner: Founders 1 Percent

Posted by admin on Sunday, August 29, 2021

Ed Asner Money Quote saying Founders were 1 percenters that had money troubles and were debtors – from his book ‘The Grouchy Historian’. Ed Asner said:
 
1 percent of their time. Many spent more than they made. Struggled their entire lives with debt. And, when they could, always married into money Quote
 

“And there you have your Founders and Framers in all their elite glory—the 1 percent of their time. Many spent more than they made. Struggled their entire lives with debt. And, when they could, always married into money. Roughly speaking: more than forty held government bonds. More than twenty were moneylenders. Over fifteen were slave owners. The rest an assortment of land and debt speculators. And most dabbled in more than one category. George Washington, for example, was a slave owner, a moneylender, a land speculator, and the largest holder of government IOUs in the country” — Ed Asner
