The Sovereign Investor
My father loved the United States.
I still remember how impressed he was by the scale of the highways, the size of the department stores, the bigness of the cars and houses, the way Americans put three scoops of ice cream on their cones and the size of the burgers at McDonald’s.
My dad just loved that Americans did things in a big way.
The generosity of people, their openness and their good-heartedness also touched my father.
This was early 1980s. It was a moment like we’re having today.
