As one of my favorite illustrations goes, there were four women who died on the same day. They were a housewife, a college professor, a prostitute and the CEO of a large corporation. The four women arrived at the gates of Heaven and were met by St. Peter. “We’ve got a special today, ladies. You get to spend three days in Heaven and three days in Hell. On the seventh day, you get to choose your eternal destination.” He spoke.
“When you want to help people, you tell them the truth. When you want to help yourself, you tell them what they want to hear.”

“The Thomas Sowell Reader”
He is possibly one of the most down-to-earth economists that may not be known among some of the younger generation. Nevertheless, if one is truly interested in business, entrepreneurship, urban history, charter schools, or plain old common-sense his name will surface quickly: Dr. Thomas Sowell.
