If only people actually understood the subject under discussion:
I never expected to go viral just for saying billionaires shouldn’t exist
One useful point is that if government hadn’t progressively devalued the currency then we wouldn’t have billionaires. No one would be at the value of money of 1900 now, would they?
A tiny percentage of people have become super rich at the expense of everyone else.
It’s not at the expense of.
Aggregate total net wealth of all households in Great Britain was £12.7 trillion in July 2014 to June 2016, up 17% from the July 2012 to June 2014 figure of £10.9 trillion.
The wealth of the people in the country increased by £2 trillon over two years. Or, enough to produce two thousand billionaires. Which is rather more than we have. Therefore the increase in wealth benefited more than the billionaires, didn’t it?
This before we even get to the underlying reality, Which is that you only get a pile ‘o cash if you’re producing something which adds value to consumers.
