Christopher Forbes and Dr. Jeffrey Lant. Two connoisseurs in ebullient conversation about life, money, collecting, and the joy of MORE!

F. Scott Fitzgerald said: “The very rich are different from you and me”…Come see for yourself on Thursday, March 24, 2pm ET

Your host Dr. Jeffrey Lant, internationally known author and commentator, will go toe-to-toe with plutocratic, billionaire Christopher (“Kip”) Forbes, Vice Chairman of Forbes Publishing Company, whose appearance reminds us "living well is the best revenge.”

Kip is the Maecenas of our drab, mediocre, second rate days. (In case your Roman history is rusty, the good Maecenas has come down from the time of Octavius Caesar as a byword for a wealthy, generous and enlightened patron of the arts).

If you want a guarantee to be rich and comfy, carefully select just the right parents, as Malcolm Forbes’ two sons Steve and Christopher did. Daddy was rich, granddaddy (a Scottish emigrant with a slew of relations in the noble Clan Forbes) was rich…get the picture? The key wasn’t just making money, it was having fun while keeping what they got and getting more.

Neither for the father nor the sons was wealth a matter of grim drudgery and punishing responsibilities. They knew that wealth must mean happiness or its cost is too high. Wealth was never their master; always their servant. To be around a Forbes is to feel joy and experience their kindness in sharing. They resurrect in themselves the penetrating phrase “Noblesse oblige,” an aspect of wealth no wealthy person can afford to forget or postpone, even if what can be given is no more than the widow’s mite.

“Ars longa. Vita brevis.” Kip, the Emperor, and high collecting adventure.

During this presentation you will see how Kip salvaged the tarnished reputation of the “forgotten” emperor Napoleon the Third (reigned 1852-1870) by ordering four days of non-stop auctioneering at the highest and most ostentatious level; in other words pure Forbes and as such followed with breathless interest by connoisseurs worldwide. Come to the program and add yourself to their informed ranks!
