    Re: Its just what you do when you cant replace your crashed Bently quickly

    I really don't care if rich people buy expensive stuff. I'm sure someone somewhere is jealous of my 98 12 valve with 600000 km on it lol. I'm luckier than them cause I don't have to live in a sh!thole like Vancouver.

    I think you are right. Tons of real estate and high end luxury items being bought in Canada using dirty money. Canada is becoming a money laundering haven!

    If you choose to live this way it shouldn’t be here in Canada, keep your money and your ideas back in the country you came from...those are your ways so keep them there.
    Bring money into a country to launder for big profits and upsetting the country’s balance should be illegal, having your child help....pack mule comes to mind here.
    You're making assumptions not based on anything. Just because a kid grows up rich does not make them entitled, many grow up poor and entitled. Some realize they are lucky and take care of the fancy luxuries they are afforded, if you got the money why not?

    Again, an assumption. Not all of the money is dirty, many simply worked really hard for it. Sure some of it is but it's not fair to label it all that way.

    What im assuming is a twenty year old kid doesn’t respect a $270k car, he may think it’s cool, rad or fkn awesome but he won’t have the mentality to understand what it takes to own and respect that kind of vehicle. Second, show me a 20year old that has put in enough time at a job to fund a $270 car.
    he has not worked for this, this was handed to him, wrong wrong wrong in everyway.
    but that’s just me. I worked hard for what I have and could pick up a Land Rover or Audi for my wife or daughter no problem but they drive Santa Fe,s and old golfs.
    money needs to be respected and giving your kids high end vehicles just seams so wrong to me. Send them on a trip around the world and get educated. That’s money well spent if you have the means too.

    Oh and by the way, regardless of whether you earned it or not. ALL money is dirty.

    I remember a kid who's dad got him a brand new carrier and waratah when he turned 18. Makes a Lambo look cheap.

    For sure but hopefully his dad made him work it and he gained some sort of respect of what it takes to make logging pay. It’s always nice to help your kids excel in the biz but I’m guessing getting up at 4am and working it till there zero trade value left he’s learned a valuable lesson that the kid in the $270 car will never know. It’s called reality.
    unless he’s a spoiled brat...then just buy him the lambo and send him off...all hope is lost.

    So how do you know the kid is not a stockbroker making his own cash? Or going to university getting a degree or five? You think only blue collar workers have work ethic?

    As for how much to pass on to your kids, Warren Buffett once offered a good rule of thumb: The perfect amount to leave to your kids, is ''enough money so that they would feel they could do anything, but not so much that they could do nothing.''
    Excellence can be attained if you...
    Care more than others think is wise.

    Risk more than others think is safe.
    Dream more than others think is practical.
    Expect more than others think is possible
