Many intelligent, honest people who earn gross inflated salaries, like Buffett/Gates/Turner, etc.

Warren Buffett's salary is $100,000 per year. Bill Gates takes no salary. Neither receive stock options. The overwhelming source of their wealth comes from capital gains from the investments they made decades ago. These are very different things, and I propose that an understanding of the difference between them is crucial.
