[Don’t worry guys, no spoilers to Spider-man 3 below]
Everyone’s talking about Spider-man so I might as well be.
Peter Parker’s Uncle Ben must have been a financial consultant I say, or at least a finance student.
“With great power, comes great responsibility.” (Parker, 2002)
We all know that money = power. We also know that money/funds that come from contributed equity do not generate as much returns as money/funds gained from incurring debts. Therefore to be efficient, power here refers to debts.
It is also a fact that responsibility = liability. To be responsible means to be liable therefore responsibility here, refers to liability.
The word ‘great’ gives plurality to both keywords therefore can be replaced with words of the similar nature – ‘more’.
“Plug everything you know into the formula…” (
John Watson, 2007)
“With more debt, comes more liability.” (ahfai, 2007)
Too bad Peter didn’t decipher the encrypted meaning behind his uncle’s last words. Otherwise we’d be watching ‘Business-man’ who got bit by a rabid suitcase and has since bonded with superpowers such as spinning options and forwards contracts out of his wrists and the ability to correctly blab out future foreign exchange rates.
