Stein shares, “My father was the first Stein in all history, as far as we know, to have accumulated any real capital. He did that by getting a fine education at Williams College and then at the University of Chicago. He was a stone genius, and among his many aspects of genius was that he knew that he must regularly convert his human capital - his intelligence and education and connections - into financial capital: namely, savings.” By using this story Ben Stein uses ethos because he is a credible source in the situation. He shares this story in spite of trying to prove a point to his son Tommy, that his grandfather started a very important task in life by working hard and saving while he could in order to be successful and for his family to have the opportunity to be successful as well.
