The Adam Smith of Our Time

If you give a man a fish, you will feed him for the day. If you teach a man to fish, he will eat for a lifetime and generations beyond. Or you can lend a man a fish, in which case he will owe you a debt of gratitude - as well as the fish. And if you charge him a rate of interest, you'll have to send a loan shark after him.

Joe Frank, "Escape from Paradise"
