Christopher Young
I can make it very clear: I get paid if we make good investments. And if we don’t, I don’t get paid. I have no incentive to sell our companies to Google; the entrepreneurs get to decide that. We are minority shareholders.

James Surowiecki
I don’t want euro bonds that serve to mutualize the entire debt of the countries in the euro zone. That can only work in the longer-term. I want euro bonds to be used to finance targeted investments in future-oriented growth projects. It isn’t the same thing. Let’s call them ‘project bonds’ instead of euro bonds.
Francois Hollande
Most of my job and most of what I do is to mentor people. There are a lot of people I work with that I don’t have investments in.

Irina Shayk
We promote new fossil fuel infrastructure, from airport expansion and coal mines in the U.K. to oil pipelines in the U.S. Investments are meant to build and secure our shared future – but all these fossil fuel investments are directly fuelling the climate crisis that threatens to undermine that future.

Arundhati Bhattacharya

Julia Gillard
My job is to look after all our investments and ensure that we grow.

My view is that one should diversify broadly across different fund investments. However, it’s tough for investors to try to pick the appropriate risk level that they should manage their funds at. Having a personal adviser would be helpful.
Myron Scholes
Most firms do two investments a year. They may talk to between 50 and 100 and do a couple, whereas we’re talking to thousands and doing several hundred.

Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen
Carrier networks were originally built for connecting phone calls. Now they’re getting swamped with bandwidth-hogging data applications. Keeping up will require huge investments. Who’s going to pay for that?

When you have a highly divided society, it’s hard to come together to make investments in the common good.

Tom Perez
Ultimately, we measure ourselves on the success of our investments.
David Cohen

Kevin Brady
As investments and as an energy source, fossil fuels have nowhere to go but down.
London Breed

Jan Schakowsky
Marylanders have led the nation in adopting a balanced approach to revenues and investments because we know that in order to maintain and build the #1 public schools in the nation, we had to ask everyone to pay their fair share. We need Congress to do the same.

I really did believe that the most successful investments were the ones that you could own for the long run.
John W. Rogers, Jr.
Haitian diplomacy will be oriented toward the influx of foreign capital, direct investments that create jobs and stimulate economic growth.
Laurent Lamothe
So many folks in the venture capital business are sheep that just want to follow the herd. They are momentum investors purchasing highly illiquid investments. That is a recipe for disaster.
Fred Wilson
Something is better than nothing. Doin’ anything for a man, there’s investments involved, there’s time and production. It’s better to give him ten bucks and get a record out than to never record the cat.
Brownie McGhee
You don’t tell a player you can’t monitor your investments for a month. There’s no way you’re going to have a billion-dollar investment and never fail to monitor it for a period of time.
Jim Irsay
There is certainly a growing body of data that correlates investments in women with a country’s general prosperity; a recognition that no country can get ahead if half its people are left behind.
Melanne Verveer
For seven years after college, I was a waitress at the Buttercup Bakery in Berkeley, and from there I got a job at Merrill Lynch as an account executive, from where I went to vice president of investments for Prudential-Bache Securities. I started my own firm in 1987.
Suze Orman
The Department of Energy made an investment that failed, and it got raked over the coals for that failed investment. This is ridiculous. The fact of the matter is, the government should be making a lot of risky investments, the majority of which are likely to fail.
Peter Diamandis
Hearst makes smart investments and partnerships across important industries, and HearstLive is the perfect opportunity to highlight the amazing innovations coming out of all of those brands.

John M. Grunsfeld

Sucheta Dalal
The frontiers of science, on the very small scale and very large scale, require large investments and international effort.
Dan Shechtman
Mutual investments of Israeli and American companies strengthen economic ties between the two countries and contribute to Israel and to the U.S. alike.
Ofra Strauss

Bill Gates
At Sequoia, we have opened offices in China and India, and we have made a handful of investments in Latin America/Brazil.
Roelof Botha

Tim Jackson
When the financial system works as it should, money and capital flow to and from households and businesses to pay for home loans, school loans, and investments to create jobs.
Henry Paulson
NASA has been one of the most successful public investments in motivating students to do well and achieve all they can achieve. It’s sad that we are turning the programme in a direction where it will reduce the amount of motivation and stimulation it provides to young people.
Neil Armstrong
ICG wasn’t an index fund so much as a collection of venture-capital investments focused on so-called business-to-business Internet companies.
Adam Lashinsky
HBOS had robbed me of my marriage, my family, my businesses, my longstanding friend and business partner, my income, my investments, my self-respect, my reputation, my privacy, my physical and mental health. It cost me my security, my image rights, my collection of classic cars – and very nearly my life.
Noel Edmonds
When people are your greatest asset, like at Deloitte, investments in human capital should be considered in the same way other companies might invest significantly in product R&D.

From landmark investments in renewable energy to bold action to tackle the climate crisis, Virginia is at the forefront of innovative efforts to protect our environment, and addressing the problem of plastic pollution is an important part of this work.
Ralph Northam
The world assumes that we are very happy with high mansions, fine carriages, servants and attendants, huge investments, and concubines. But he who is without the honor and strength of the soul can be anything but happy.
Munshi Premchand
Debt certainly isn’t always a bad thing. A mortgage can help you afford a home. Student loans can be a necessity in getting a good job. Both are investments worth making, and both come with fairly low interest rates.
Jean Chatzky
If you were approaching the TARP investments from a pure investment standpoint, then there’s no doubt in my mind the taxpayer lost, and probably lost big.
Jeb Hensarling
My investments have been hurt.
Scott Adams
The one thing that I don’t think the Obama administration gets anywhere near enough credit for is the high level of administrators. They meet all the time so they can synergize the federal investments. That’s the way any corporation would do it.
John Hickenlooper
Investments in diversity are critical for the long-term viability and future competitiveness of WWT.
David Steward
I’m not emotional about investments. Investing is something where you have to be purely rational and not let emotion affect your decision making – just the facts.
Bill Ackman
We have a broad range of investments. Anyone who invests in emerging markets around the world has investments in Russia. This is a tiny portion of our portfolio.
Greg Gianforte
I thought I would spend the rest of my life being a good tax lawyer. The interesting thing about being a tax lawyer is, none of your clients are poor. I had clients come to me and say, ‘Can you help us make investments?’ That led to me getting into the real estate business.
Jerry Reinsdorf
We must incorporate climate modelling in future plans and investments. Whether it is policies on crop procurement, skilling and job creation, urbanisation or even beach tourism, climate adaptation pathways will have to be imagined.
Rohini Nilekani
Errors in decision-making lead young people to under-save for retirement, doctors to miss tumours, CEOs to make catastrophic investments, governments to engage in needless wars, and parents to irreversibly traumatize their children.
Noreena Hertz
We’re not just designed just to work all day and run a rat race. We’re designed to be in community, to volunteer, to vote, to raise our kids. And I think the more inputs and investments we can give in people to do those things, the better off we are as a community.
Michael Tubbs
Floyd has showed me that he’s set up with real estate, businesses, and investments.
Gervonta Davis
I’d stay away from investments in a variety of sectors that are capital intensive. Anyone who says we need $100 million before we know if what we’re doing makes sense and the customers want it – that’s not going to work.
Steve Jurvetson
We in Africa must prepare our economies in that direction that attracts such huge and qualitative investments. It is for us to push, and we must push.
Yemi Osinbajo
Investors have to ask themselves two questions. How much can we grow our investments? And, can we afford our mistakes?

We see opportunities in the networking and telecom space, including 5G, where we see accelerated investments.
Ashok Soota
We have a long history of making smart long-term investments in New Hampshire.

David Cheriton
There is very strong historical data that suggests the way societies grow is by making large, long-term investments.
Fareed Zakaria
There’s a tendency to look at investments in isolation. Investors focus on the risk of individual securities.
Daniel Kahneman
Battering down solar cells on the roofs of Wal-Marts in California. I think that will be some of the highest-return investments that anyone ever makes.
Jeremy Grantham
I have no complaints about losing money I put in high-risk investments. I did some of that when I had real money; my informed choice, my measured gamble.
Elayne Boosler
Assess Bitcoins? All you can do is examine the trading patterns, which do not provide a real analysis of any underlying economic value. The economics of investments are not solely based on supply and demand, and that is all that goes into Bitcoin prices.
Kurt Eichenwald
Today, President Obama is making smart investments in clean energy – wind, solar, biofuels – as part of an all-of-the-above energy strategy that supports thousands of jobs, not in the Middle East, but in the Midwest.
Tom Vilsack
India’s growth drivers are actually two growth drivers. One is consumption, which arises out of our demographic advantage. And the other is the investments. Because we need a lot of investment in the country.
Chanda Kochhar
Markets – on their own – will not make investments in the technologies and infrastructure that would benefit an entire industry.
Brian Deese
Are we better off if we displace jobs and investments to other countries and global emissions go up? I say no. Let’s bring that production here and have less emissions globally because we can make things more efficiently and cleaner.
Andrew Scheer
It is a matter of concern that science departments in India’s vast university system have suffered greatly due to lack of investments, both material and in terms of faculty.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee
China should be developing through the various foreign investments it receives. I hope for its level-headed and rational understanding that anything to discourage that is a disservice to itself.
Yoshihiko Noda
When you get divorced, you have to go through this awful thing of listing everything you own. When you actually sit down and write the list, you realize that the only good investments are art and property.
Tamara Mellon
Simply put, investors should own less equities, more bonds, more global investments, more cash and more dry ammunition.
Mohamed El-Erian
What the Obama administration’s policies have really been oriented towards have always been towards providing benefits continuing consumption. What this country needs really is a policy which stresses investments.
Bill Gross
While cyber espionage is having a tremendous negative affect on the global economy from the theft-caused drain of intellectual property and the resulting adverse incentives for continued investments in innovative growth, the threat from destructive and disruptive attacks is amplifying the risks even further.
Dmitri Alperovitch
Our investments in social justice and basic needs are as vital to our future as fiscal and macroeconomic reforms. A nation deeply divided will not stand. And it certainly will not move forward.
Gloria Macapagal Arroyo
There are great municipal investments out there, but on a blanket basis you have to be really careful about knowing what cash flows are supporting your investments.
Meredith Whitney
I’m a businesswoman. You know, I have other investments too, real estate. A long time ago, I would buy a house and flip it. But now everybody does that, so I don’t do that anymore because there’s no houses out there to buy.
Vanna White
Sweden’s development is based on the equal rights of men and women. We know that investments in gender equality and sexual and reproductive rights pay off.
Isabella Lovin
Rather than support workers at home or investments in public schools, Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan support the Bush-era tax cuts for the very wealthy. They want to hand over our schools to private corporations.
Randi Weingarten
Economic growth driven by large-scale infrastructure investments without equitable provision of education will leave hundreds of millions of people behind, exacerbating inequality, disillusion, and instability.
Julia Gillard
The cloud removes the barriers to entry associated with traditional IT investments – meaning even the smallest companies can benefit from enterprise-class services.
Jean-Philippe Courtois
I had a couple of investments that didn’t go my way. That’s why I laugh at guys who say, ‘Oh, I’m going to open a clothing line. I’m going to start a restaurant.’
Robert Horry
Once we started making investments, we realized the same service we provided to artists was applicable to entrepreneurs as well.
Troy Carter
Financial decision-makers at every level are recognising that fossil fuel investments risk their returns being undermined by stranded assets.
Barry Gardiner
It’s good to start early when buying jewelry pieces. Aside from being investments, they are classic, they are timeless, and they are something that you pass on – it’s a memory, it’s an heirloom.
Heart Evangelista
Brownfields cleanups have been treated like capital investments in the tax laws, and they really are repairs and should be taxed as such.
Elizabeth Esty
I’m glad I made business investments, because it gave me the confidence financially to make brave choices. If I hadn’t done that, I’d still have been trying to play 19-year-olds in films. I know there are other avenues for me.
Preity Zinta
All I’ll say is if you look at countries where it is – where they are rapidly growing, they’re investing in their infrastructure. They’re investing in their educations. They are trying to streamline regulations, but they’re not neglecting key investments.
Austan Goolsbee
One of the smartest investments we can make in Connecticut is in job training programs.
Chris Murphy
I am proud of my record as Colorado’s State Treasurer. I have protected the taxpayer’s money and grown the value of the state’s investments in a very challenging economy.
Cary Kennedy
In investing, we intuitively think we should make a number of small bets. A blockbuster strategy is the opposite. It means making fewer huge investments. But it turns out to be safer.
Anita Elberse
Our experience is that most entrepreneurs are able to attract debt, even for risky and early stage investments. There are investors who provide debt, but very few who fund through equity.
Jamshyd Godrej
I like to see a tidy shop, and I want to see my investments well managed.
Nathan Kirsh
News is important information that may influence your investments. Noise is talk or buzz or some headline that prevents you from seeing a story clearly. News is useful. Noise is a distraction. Calling what’s noise and news after the fact is easy.
Maria Bartiromo
I’m only going to make investments with people that I’d want to spend time with anyway.
Audrey MacLean
I’ve been in real estate for my whole life, I’ve been trying to sharpshoot the market with my investments, I’m never right. All you need to do is get near the bottom. That’s good enough.
Barbara Corcoran
When you put money directly to a problem, it makes a good headline. It makes a good campaign slogan. You get to claim that you’ve engaged in these activities within an election cycle. But certain investments take longer than an election cycle.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Moreover, the practical recommendations deduced from ecological principles threaten the vested interests of commerce; it is hardly surprising that the financial and political power created by these investments should be used sometimes to suppress environmental impact studies.
Garrett Hardin
Besides infrastructure, there is a huge opportunity in housing and urbanisation of cities – not only building new ones, but also renewing the infrastructure of old cities to make them more livable. This provides tremendous scope for large investments to fuel growth.
Jamshyd Godrej
Besides the devastating impact that the Ryan budget has directly on individuals, it does nothing to support job creation or our global competitiveness. Investments in both are drastically affected through cuts in funding for transportation and infrastructure projects, as well as funding for research and development.
Albio Sires
Just because a company’s future is highly uncertain doesn’t mean an investment in it is risky. In fact, some of the best potential investments are highly uncertain but have little risk of permanent capital loss.
Whitney Tilson
Eventually, my W-2 income will wind down, and my investments can actually make that up.
Alex Rodriguez
I believe my business and non-profit investments are much more beneficial to societal well-being than sending more money to Washington.
Charles Koch
Owners and chairmen prefer to buy in talent as investments against relegation at one end of the table, or to attain the holy grail of European football at the top end.
Robbie Savage
Women who have it all should try having nothing: I have no husband, no children, no real estate, no stocks, no bonds, no investments, no 401(k), no CDs, no IRAs, no emergency fund – I don’t even have a savings account. It’s not that I have not planned for the future; I have not planned for the present.
Elizabeth Wurtzel
The thing that the Nigerian government will do is to secure the environment. If the environment is not secured, then unfortunately, the investments wouldn’t be coming in.
Muhammadu Buhari
As a company, we are not interested only in investments.
Tulsi Tanti
Fear causes individuals to restrain their spending and firms to withhold investments; as a result, the economy weakens, confirming their fear and leading them to restrain spending further. The downturn deepens, and a vicious circle of despair takes hold.
Robert J. Shiller
Accelerated depreciation helps companies bring forward capital-intensive investments by reducing payback time. It’s not a hand out. Companies still have to pay the tax, but they simply get to defer it.
Anthony Pratt
True disruption means threatening your existing product line and your past investments. Breakthrough products disrupt current lines of businesses.
Peter Diamandis
I think that Governor Romney operates on the capital gains tax, his investments, what he lives off of instead of doing it off of his income.
Allen West
It’s hard to make small investments when you’re a billion-dollar fund.
Alan Patricof
Targeting women is key in developing countries. It allows them to go to school, to say how many children they’re going to have, which drives the issue of population and how their children will be educated. Women are the best investments in developing countries.
Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
The wealth that was created by my investments wasn’t put into a giant swimming pool as so many elected demagogues seem to imagine. Instead it benefitted our employees, their families and our community at large.
Kenneth Langone
I was a stock broker once. I think there is an absolute place for market investments. But they should never be the basis of one’s retirement. They should be an additional piece on top of a basic, secure, guaranteed retirement benefit.
Barbara Boxer
Democrats must adopt a progressive economic message that focuses on large, direct infrastructure investments, affordable health care, portable pensions, and public-private investments that promote advanced manufacturing.
Tim Ryan
Move your personal investments and retirement funds to socially responsible investment (SRI) funds that support only those corporations that uphold higher standards of behavior. Returns on SRI funds are usually equal to, if not better than, many of the well-known traditional mutual funds.
Simon Mainwaring
My interest in space started early, but for many years, I could not find any space-related investments that really penciled-out for venture. That changed in 2009 when Elon Musk came to us with a big vision to explore Mars while producing rockets at a fraction of a price and making space accessible.
Steve Jurvetson
The best investments are the easiest ones to approve.
Stephen A. Schwarzman
I lost all my investments after everything crashed in 2001. Prior to that, I’d been living off the interest on my investments, which was very healthy because it allowed frequent travel, and I had a lovely apartment.
Marie Helvin
I believe that the Chinese people as a whole love to make investments in real estate.
Pansy Ho
I think, for OPEC, the main challenge is to have a price level which brings good profits to them, good incentives for the investments, but at the same time, to prevent prices going to very high levels.
Fatih Birol
The return on investment in global health is tremendous, and the biggest bang for the buck comes from vaccines. Vaccines are among the most successful and cost-effective health investments in history.
Seth Berkley
We are putting the customer at the center of everything we do and are directing our resources towards those innovations and investments that will strengthen our ability to deliver a better McDonald’s experience over time.
Steve Easterbrook
I think we need to rethink a lot of business skills. In finance, for example, social impact bonds are potentially a way of providing capital for investments that save the public money in a context in which government often doesn’t invest in things that would save it money.
Nicholas Kristof
2005 opens with the promise of a number of substantial direct private investments that can swiftly transform the economy and set all sectors on a pronounced upward curve.
Baldwin Spencer
Indeed, American companies make three times as much profits from their investment in one E.U. country, Ireland, than they do from all their investments in China.
John Bruton
We have lots of evidence that putting investments in early childhood education, even evidence from very hard-nosed economists, is one of the very best investments that the society can possibly make. And yet we still don’t have public support for things like preschools.
Alison Gopnik
If a founder has passion and innovation, he needs to be supported. I am more intuitive than a numbers person, and I recognise that not all investments are going to be positive. Some may fail, and some may have problems for other reasons. That is life.
Ratan Tata
Cap and trade is an important tool in California’s climate policy portfolio. It sends a price signal to industries to reduce their carbon pollution while generating billions of dollars in revenue for investments in clean transportation and direct pollution reduction.
Kevin de Leon
The Chinese have done some extraordinary things in terms of the investments they’ve made in alternative sources of energy.
Henry Paulson
One of America’s best investments in peace and security is our special relationship with Israel.
Kevin Brady
I’m in a collective with the same guys I met on the streets at 12. The greatest investments I ever made were those friendships.
Fantastic Negrito
Corruption is a cancer: a cancer that eats away at a citizen’s faith in democracy, diminishes the instinct for innovation and creativity; already-tight national budgets, crowding out important national investments. It wastes the talent of entire generations. It scares away investments and jobs.
Joe Biden
Do not buy the hype from Wall St. and the press that stocks always go up. There are long periods when stocks do nothing and other investments are better.
Jim Rogers
I have plenty of investments that I wish I’d never made. But the model is to lose money on a lot of investments and then make 1,000X or 10,000X on an investment.
Sam Altman
There are bridges that we have built not only between individual companies but also between associations. This will keep business and investments flowing.
Arancha Gonzalez
One of the first things I tell people is, if you want to learn about investing, you want to open an account and make real investments because that’s when it becomes real.
Mohnish Pabrai
Poverty-fighting programs are not handouts – they are investments.
Irwin Redlener
Rather than play politics with funding our government, pitting one group against another, we should make strong investments in our future.
Seth Moulton
The year 1983 was crazy. People wanted to sell not only their investments… but also their companies.
Carlos Slim
Every time you have a carrot instead of a cookie, every time you go to the gym instead of going to the movies, that’s a costly investment in your health. But how much you want to invest is going to depend on how much longer you expect to live in the future, even if you don’t make those investments.
Emily Oster
Our investments in data, Internet and international have been particularly timely and have positioned the company to post industry-leading incremental revenue gains.
Bernard Ebbers
An active investor is someone who actually lives off their investments as opposed to wages from a job.
Robert Kiyosaki
My private financial situation is such that I don’t need to worry about my investments. I don’t have much to invest.
Wolfgang Schauble
I’ve made money in real estate, hotel, and restaurant investments.
Hill Harper
I am the CEO of HCL Corporation, and, of course, a large part of my time does get spent in HCL Corporation, whether it is in actively managing our investments or perhaps even the governance and accountability and really seeing the strategic direction forward for HCL Corporation.
Roshni Nadar
If investments in banks fall, it is a tragedy, and people say, ‘What are we going to do?’ but if people die of hunger, have nothing to eat or suffer from poor health, that’s nothing.
Pope Francis
I have been rich, and I have been broke. Some of it is my fault for choosing bad management and making bad investments. But that is life – we all take risks.
Ronnie Wood
I’m going to continue working and pushing to make sure Washington is making strong Federal investments to strengthen rural health care in Georgia, and help save lives.
Raphael Warnock
I believe we need a balanced, bipartisan approach to debt reduction that includes a combination of spending cuts, investments in economic growth, and simplification of the tax code that closes corporate loopholes that incentivize companies to ship jobs overseas.
Bill Foster
People would like better batteries but they are wary of making investments. What is required is both a technology push and a market pull.
Donald Sadoway
I think that we’re trying to look at all of our assets and figure out what’s the best use and where we need to make investments in infrastructure to enable the projects that we want.
David Ige
We have pension funds with 1.5 trillion euros investments, and they want to find business opportunities in India.
Mark Rutte
Throughout U.S. history, competent public investments have been an essential complement to private investments – from the Louisiana Purchase, to land-grant colleges, to the Interstate Highway System, to the Internet.
Felix Rohatyn
Make it a point to choose the right backer, make your investments wisely, and do the work of the Lord which guarantees exceeding and abundant eternal benefits.
Monica Johnson
I had attracted large investments into information technology and built infrastructure in Hyderabad, including India’s first greenfield airport, apart from attracting the country’s first private sector investments in power generation.
N. Chandrababu Naidu
Europe is kind of fragmented. Africa is nascent; we’ve made a few investments, including four in Egypt. I visit 50-60 cities and 20-25 countries a year. The intent is to be a global fund, which takes time and prioritization.
Dave McClure
Formula 1 will always have high and strong investment. Who can’t make these investments will race in other series.
Luca Cordero di Montezemolo
Before you can become a millionaire, you must learn to think like one. You must learn how to motivate yourself to counter fear with courage. Making critical decisions about your career, business, investments and other resources conjures up fear, fear that is part of the process of becoming a financial success.
Thomas J. Stanley
My wheels are running. My investments are local, regional and international.
Al-Waleed bin Talal
We need to ask elected officials supporting Keystone XL whether they’re willing to put their constituents and our environment at risk so that foreign oil tycoons get a better return on their tar sands investments. Keystone XL backers will keep trying to sell us a sucker’s deal; it’s up to us to say no.
Tom Steyer
Our government is ready to guarantee their investments for them, and then we will create tax incentives. We are interested in having all these things and with the privatization we also want to create more jobs and better conditions for the workers.
Ibrahim Rugova
Working together with our exceptional leadership team, our Ministry of Health was empowered to make smart investments that could unlock our potential by producing long-lasting health and economic benefits for all.
Tedros Adhanom
No matter how many times you say Social Security is broke, the reality is that Social Security’s independent revenue stream and its Trust Fund’s investments maintain the program’s solvency until 2037, when it may begin to fall short.
Ted Deutch
I had this relationship with Strikeforce that included getting all these investments and really building the brand up, moving it in the right direction. I was constantly looking for financing and opportunities.
Frank Shamrock
While U.S. investments in India are growing, we also need Indian investments in America.
Raja Krishnamoorthi
Developing good investments in Africa is by and large the best for the people of Africa that have a job, that have electricity, that might have clean water, that might have those things that we in the West take horribly for granted.
Erik Prince
Enjoy the magic of compounding returns. Even modest investments made in one’s early 20s are likely to grow to staggering amounts over the course of an investment lifetime.
John C. Bogle
I invest in black-led startups not because of a sense of charity. I make those investments because of the basic principle of supply and demand and the reality that black entrepreneurs typically lack the network to have their deals become bid up and overvalued.
Troy Carter
Given my earlier experience as the longest served CM of the erstwhile undivided A.P., I focused on choosing right people in the right place with clear priorities in the departments that were vital to attract large-scale investments into the state.
N. Chandrababu Naidu
Most of the money I make now comes from investments from CrunchFund. And the vast majority of that is what’s called carried interest.
Michael Arrington
I haven’t changed any of my investments since I’ve been in the Senate and haven’t purchased any stocks since I’ve been in the Senate.
John Barrasso
My source of income is sports betting. I have some investments also.
James Holzhauer
Empowering communities by leveraging federal and local investments helps improve the federal-local relationship and advance shared priorities.
Cindy Hyde-Smith
I believe with all my heart that bold, public investments in care for people, communities, and the environment can anchor the rebirth of our country and secure our future.
Jamaal Bowman
I am fighting for those middle-class families who want us to deal with our debt and deficit, but they also want the investments that are critical to our country moving forward.
Patty Murray
The rigor and discipline we use in running our business is key to consistently executing our growth strategy. And we systematically applied the same discipline to our investments, including acquisitions.
Pierre Nanterme
Let’s make sure that when companies make investments to reduce emissions that they’re rewarded for that and encouraged to do more.
Andrew Scheer
In business, standards establish the rules of the game, creating path dependencies as investments are made and corresponding designs are set in stone and plastic. Inferior standards can prevail due to smart marketing or industry collusion.
Evgeny Morozov
U.S. companies earn more from their investments in the EU than in the rest of the world combined.
John Bruton
The government can access these funds but only following approval by the parliament to support our budget requirements and investments in infrastructure development, education, public health, and so on.
Jose Ramos-Horta
I’ve always been pleased with the investments I’ve made with my friend Albert Frere and I regret not having followed him more, because I would have been a lot richer.
Bernard Arnault
Do we have to regulate derivatives? Yes, we do. ‘Cause when I did this in my investments, frankly, no one knew who could pay who. But derivatives have an important place in our economy.
Jeff Greene
I have no doubt that my M.B.A. from New York University’s Stern School of Business was one of the best investments I ever made. It helped me climb the corporate ladder and become an entrepreneur.
Vivek Wadhwa
I used to not talk much to anyone about my investments.
Mohnish Pabrai
We need to believe that we can achieve progress in fixing our broken immigration system, prioritizing smart border security investments, cracking down on those who are trafficking and smuggling, and relieving the ongoing humanitarian crisis at our southern border.
Abigail Spanberger
Americans are in a cycle of fear which leads to people not wanting to spend and not wanting to make investments, and that leads to more fear. We’ll break out of it. It takes time.
Warren Buffett
Real estate investing is unique in that it’s almost as much a career or a way of life as it is a form of investing. Indeed, the fact that real estate is involves so much sweat equity makes it unique among other investments.
Fabrizio Moreira
With the world changing fast, we needed capital for investments. There’s only so much bandwidth in your own balance sheet.
Patrick Whitesell
Food tech has been kind of an area that we have been making a number of investments in. Kind of a big boring industry, but a lot of people eat.
Dave McClure
I would suggest that you only take advice from those people who have a lot of experience and who you trust as well. Also, be extremely conservative with your investments.
Caroline Wozniacki
Argentina needs to have a different foreign policy. Because of a lack of foreign policy, investments haven’t been what they should be.
Mauricio Macri
And here where the fact that we’ve given over half a billion dollars to New York really plays a role, because New York has already made a lot of investments in the kinds of things which you’d expect to have as basic security.
Michael Chertoff
My biggest extravagances are also investments. I have several houses in California, a house in Nashville, an office complex, and I bought the old home place in Tennessee. They are different places for me to write, but I can turn right around and sell them.
Dolly Parton
It’s very hard to go out and make big investments to take advantage of the shale energy if we don’t know if it’s always going to be there, what price it’s going to be there, whether the country’s going to allow it to be exported, or whether it’s going to go and affect subsidized U.S. manufacturing.
Lloyd Blankfein
Because of my own experience with market fluctuation, I recognize the great risks one takes on investments. This converts the Social Security safety net into a risky proposition many cannot afford to take.
Grace Napolitano
In my home state of Indiana, we prove every day that you can build a growing economy on balanced budgets, low taxes, even while making record investments in education and roads and health care.
Mike Pence
Never put your savings in risky investments. Only disposable income should find its way there.
Soha Ali Khan
