The kicker is having inherited all that money she probably just put people to work who ironed out all those deals for her, for juicy bonuses of
course. Of course it has nothing to do, that due to the weigh capitalism works, it puts more and more money in fewer pockets, driving up inflation for
everyone as fresh cash is infused in the system, because more and more money sits idle on bank accounts of people who have so much of it they dont
need to risk a good chunk of it by reinvesting or spending it.
no great surprise that one who inherited fabulous wealth, then confused it's natural growth (thanks to tax evasion, offshore accounts, creative
accounting, exploiting the 'rigged-in-favour-of-the-rich' system etc) with 'hard work', is so utterly out of touch with reality. a reprehensible
example of the detached from actuality mentality these people share. they make me sick.
Thats probably another reason. "Hard work" and sitting down and thinking how to make the most money out of what you got arent necessarily the 2 same
things. At NASA work a lot of very smart people. Imagine if each of them instead of pursuing science and the advancement of mankind would have pooled
their resources to find the latest algorithm to extract money out of the financial and stock markets.
This bears the question, do we live in a meritocracy or not? Shouldnt a noble price winner get a bit more than a million dollars, for potential
bringing forward the next cog in the wheel of the machine that propels mankind to the stars, seen as thats what a good soccer player does in 10 weeks,
some in one week?
Also to conclude, by the very definition of the therm rich not everyone can be rich. Rich means you have vastly more than average. If everybody is a
millionair bred costs a thousand Dollars, or Lire, to give an actually existing example. So the richness of the few is not backed by oil, not backed
by Gold, or even the economy, but the poverty of the many, untill the currency the rich hold is rejected by anybody and everybody who holds something
That would be the real revolution, telling the rich that their money is not good with you and to give you something else instead, but nobody is going
to refuse flabby easily flammable cash anytime soon.
