I doubt any of his children are stupid, but I did find this interesting article where he basically states none of them are capable of running his businesses.

Unless a person has actually been cloned, they will never be an exact clone.

If someone could figure out how to market the deprivation endured in childhood which spurs some to achieve greatness, it would change the world, but who can say in what way?

I know a guy that went from making $200 a week in the 70's to making 100mm before he was 40 years old. His kids have grown up rich, best schools/universities and none of them have "the thrill to kill" in a business sense, their father was a deal maker, hard worker and was always looking at the angles.......the kids do well to hold jobs.
