More time in the day.

 

What might you swap all your wealth for?

Immortality.

 

Donald Trump was once a case of: “If you owe the bank a thousand, they close you down; but if you owe the bank a billion, you own the bank”. What’s your view on the banking crisis?

Greed, if left completely unfettered, will run amok.

 

What phrase or word do you most loathe?

‘Do what you can, with what you have, where you are’ – Theodore Roosevelt.
