GLEN ROCK, N.J. — Paul B. Brown of Glen Rock knows wealth.
"I have worked for a man who owns his-and-her 747s. Another former employer has a 10,000-acre hobby farm he visits about 10 times a year," he writes in the New York Times.
"And, in a total coincidence, I have been hired by two people who each happen to own one of the 25 largest yachts in the world, boats that come with 12 times the living space of my house and are equipped not only with fully stocked wine cellars but also with helicopters and submarines.
"So I know what wealthy is. And I know my wife and I are not."
Brown, in a recent opinion pieced published in the NYT, explained why he is giving his children their inheritance now.
