Baron's Spotlights Rubenstein's Philanthropy

Baron's joined the list of media sources jumping way down the philanthropy list to spotlight Carlyle Group co-founder David Rubenstein. 

It has a similar feel to employers endlessly pressing the money button to motivate workers.  Pay is usually far down the list of motivators, but it's the "go to" motivator for many leaders.

Oddly, Rubenstein's riches come from squeezing employees, cutting pay, benefits or their very positions.  Many a retirement has been spoiled by Rubenstein and his ilk and many more will be.
