Celebrate Forbes Ranking Of The Kansas City Family Cash Ruling Class
Quick look at your Kansas City betters . . .
KC Biz Journal: "Two venerable names in Kansas City made the latest Forbes list of America’s Richest Families. The Hall family, patriarchs of Hallmark Cards Inc., came in at No. 89 on the list. Forbes put the family’s wealth at $2.6 billion. At No. 124 on the list was the Ward family ($1.8 Billion), which owns Russell Stover Candies Inc. and Whitman’s Candies Inc."
This workaday link is important not only because it reminds us who's the boss (other than Tony Danza, of course) but also to mythbust the tyranny of the so-called "work ethic" in acquiring wealth that seems to mislead so many Kansas City natives that don't bother to look the larger role that inheritance is playing in the U.S. economy.
