Toward Sustainable Habits and Durable Prosperity
Mike Peterson is a busy young man of diverse talents with the skills to describe and illustrate his observations on society. After completing his Graduate Business Management Degree, Mike is now studying art in joint program between the Savannah College of Art and Design and Georgia Tech where he also plays college football.
The paintings shown here are two of the three panels Mike is painting to share his observations on the success and downfall of athletes. Even at the height of their career when they become very rich, their social status is to be “rich” while the owner of the team is “wealthy”. In addition to sharing with me this quote from Chris Rock about rich versus wealthy, Mike provided as an example of indecent level of wealth and power in the world of sports, the kind of salary made by Super Bowl CEO, Paul Hoolahan. This was two days before Hoolahan joind the 10 Greediest Americans list published by Nation of Change.
