Advice to My Nephew Clayton

Nephew Clayton:

You will, most probably, have by now been taught to work hard, get an education, and make a moderately good living working for some company or other.  That is total bullshit!  Were I forty years younger, here is what I would have done.

Get yourself into the Physics Department of the California Institute of Technology.  There, work on your Doctorate of Philosophy in the field of Quantum Field Theory.  You will want to study systems in which spacetime is subject to random fluctuations.  Examine the Radon Transform of information deriving from such a system: specifically, you would be looking for the Riemann-Stieltjes Integral of the underlying field weighted by the probability measure of the random fluctuations.

Once you have finished that, which should take you less than three years, tell the physics world to go shove it where the Sun never shines.  Instead, get yourself some financial backers and apply what you have learned to the system that is the international financial market.

If you have accomplished what I think is the correct way of evaluating this last mentioned system, you should be wealthier than both Warran Buffet and Bill Gates combined by the time that you reach 65.

The gauntlet has been thrown down.

I hope that this helps.
