Actor Ashton Kutcher became iconic playing vapid pretty boys. But along with Madonna manager Guy Oseary, he’s been backed by some of the world’s best-known billionaires (Ron Burkle, Eric Schmidt, Mark Cuban, David Geffen, Marc Benioff). And he’s helped fund some of the greatest tech deals ever (Uber, Airbnb, Skype, Pinterest, Spotify). After turning $30 million into a quarter-billion, he’s going bigger–and crafting one of the most unusual stories in modern money management.
Money in its final, completed character now appears in all directions as a contradiction, a contradiction which dissolves itself, drives towards its own dissolution. As the general form of wealth, the whole world of real riches stands opposite it. It is their pure abstraction – ..it is a pure fantasy. Midas.
