Sam Polk – Addicted to Money


Sam Polk

In a recent opinion piece in “The New York Times”, former hedge fund manager Sam Polk wrote that he made millions on Wall Street, but it wasn’t enough. He wanted more money, the same way an alcoholic needs another drink. Three years ago, he walked away from Wall Street to start a nonprofit called Groceryships, which helps poor families struggling with obesity and food addiction. Polk shares his story of recovery from wealth addiction.
