Real Wealth Vs. Paper Valuations


 

wealthymattersSam is a painter. He has about $50000 in cash and no particular income source apart from small gigs here and there. He is very savvy in his expenses and doesn’t waste any of it, painting most of the time.

He shows his paintings to one of his friends, who happens to be a consultant. The friend on seeing a particular painting, stops and wanders in exclamation, “Dude, you should show this to art galleries, they would pay 100s of millions for this”.

Sam gets excited. He gets some more consultants to do the review for his painting and they too tell him that they can sell the painting easily for 50 million dollars. He pays the consultants $500 each in fee and they are off.

Sam is very happy. He is going to be a millionaire. He decides to celebrate. Spends 1000 dollars on dinner and wine. Next day, he meets a lot of people, “They say, yeah, this is a really wonderful painting. Congrats, you’ve come up with your masterpiece.” Read more of this post
