"Anyone can be a millionaire, but to become a billionaire, you need an astrologer."
-J. P. Morgan
It is said that he followed his astrologer Evangeline Adam’s advice not to go on Titanic.
Short Background
J.P. Morgan was an American financier, banker, philanthropist and art collector who
dominated corporate finance and industrial consolidation during his time. His exercise of
power may have contributed to America’s long-standing antipathy to wealth and business.
Known for organizing industrial trusts such as U.S. Steel and General Electric, he was the
unofficial central banker of the USA before there was a Federal Reserve and single-handedly
saved the United States from bankruptcy on two occasions.
