The problem with ego-mania is its propensity to increase one's faith in invincibility, and business doesn't have anything to do with faith (TV evangelism aside
).

The Weinsteins are merely reaping what they have sown...no sympathy here.

The problem with guys like the Weinsteins, it seems to me, is that the same traits they relied upon for success led to their current problems. Call it ego, chutzpah, or supreme confidence, it led them to believe that they couldn't fail at anything. They are evidently learning the dreary truth that if you gamble you ultimately lose and maybe lose often enough to fail altogether.
