Like all good ideas, of course, I'm not the first one to realize that the “capital” class makes money at a faster rate than 90% of the population.
I'm interested in reading this book, “Capital in the Twenty-First Century” by Thomas Piketty.
Since the dawn of history, 2000 years ago, the return on investment for capital has always exceeded the rate of growth of the overall economy.
I was talking about the rate of inflation. But we could have been talking about GDP. GDP hasn't grown a lot in North America and Western Europe over the past 50 years.
At least I'm not crazy.
