I wish more rich people would share more of their wealth voluntarily.

Good for Cole.

Not likely... Rich people are some of the stingiest

Look at Lecheap James

Can you explain your second sentence? I don't get it. I understand the relevance of taxes in December 2017, given the new legislation. I don't get how such legislation makes it relevant to criticize people for gifting.
I don't criticize people for gifting. I'm calling this for what it is: a shrewd business move. It's great that children will benefit from it, but let's not get ahead of ourselves: between tax liability and finishing costs, Hamels saved a considerable amount of money right before tax cutoff and after failing to sell the property.

Is Lebron cheap? That wasnít my impression.

I donít care what collateral benefits Hamels receives: this was a cool gesture.
