12-year old Jacob Rees-Mogg on his ambitions and how he loves money

Here he is at 12 years old talking about his love for money and his hero:


Owl says:

Matthew 21:16 (King James version)

“And said unto him, Hearest thou what these say? And Jesus saith unto them, Yea; have ye never read, Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise?”

Don’t think Jesus meant praise for the Conservative Party!

Oh, and his hero Arnold Weinstock?

“Arnold Weinstock spent 40 years building the General Electric Company into a British industrial powerhouse encircling the globe, selling power plants to China, locomotives to America and advanced radar systems to the Gulf. Weinstock’s style of management was frugal and unique. He prided himself on the company’s dingy headquarters at Stanhope Gate in the heart of London. Walls were never painted until they peeled. Visitors were offered water, not tea or coffee.

He would work in his sixth-floor office until late in the night, checking management accounts from dozens of subsidiary companies line by line. Managers lived in dread of the late-night call from the boss who insisted that every screw be properly accounted for.”
