Promotional items? What would he be trying to promote?
The TV show?
@Bobology Those are Dansko--from the Walking Company. They are the Helen model. The Walking Company was very helpful in helping me pick out my pair (mine aren't Helens---something close that looked like them, so I posted that pic instead.)
Oh, I absolutely think JB is very insecure and wants to be the best and in control. I think Jeremy is more likely to want his children to succeed because that makes him look good, especially if that child is Jeremy, JR.

Easy. They don't want their women too smart or God forbid, too ambitious.
This is sort of related, but there is a lot of research and a lot of papers written about the increasing gap between the rich and the poor in the USA. And one of the contributing factors is that 50 years ago, by and large you had a stay-at-home population of women, married to income-earning men. That then began to change but overwhelmingly the men made more money, and there was often the effect of a high-earning man lifting a woman a level or more up from her socioeconomic position. For example, the much more common scenario of executive men marrying assistants and so on. What has changed with the influx of women into the workplace is that we have become a much more class-defined society. Meaning, the professional class tends to marry preferentially within the class itself. Lawyers married to other lawyers, doctors married to doctors, accountants, etc. And as time goes on, this will just become more pronounced.
I still think the bigger question is if these men who think that they are super intelligent, and who may have married a woman they feel is less so inclined would want that woman to be the homeschool teacher for their own children.
Wouldnt they want their own kids to have the best of of educations, or is the goal for the pseudo intellect to always have the upper hand and control?
I have always thought that JB was very insecure about himself and wanted to ensure that he was always the best...and in control.
