>>1088821 >Does that seem fair? Absolutely not. Good thing our economy is set up to be prosperous, not fair.
The truth is, your metric of value for work is different than mine. The market, an aggregate of everybody's decisions regarding money, has determined that the CEO of a Fortune 500 performs a more valuable service than me and you. I'm not able to change that; I'm also not too broken up about it.
You people don't seem to understand that you are the greedy ones. They create wealth, they don't go and steal it from people. And you just want a share of it without doing anything. What the hell do you care if someone has more than you?
>>1088811 Ben has 100 dollars. You have 100 dollars. Ben takes 25 of your dollars. Ben now has 125 dollars. You now have 75 dollars. To rub it in your face, Ben prints himself an extra 100 dollars. Ben now has 225 dollars, while you still have 75 dollars. He then taxes you to pay for the printing of the extra hundred dollars for 25 dollars. Ben now has 250 dollars while you only have 50.
>>1088803 Spoiler [spoiler]Nobody here is actually rich. It's all roleplaying. Actual rich people don't discuss finances or give free advice on 4chan, and nobody will ever get rich from listening to 4chan[/spoiler]
>Ben takes 25 of your dollars Ben is a thief and is now in jail. What point are you trying to make here?
Ben has 100 dollars. You have 100 dollars. Ben gets a loan at the bank and starts up a company. Ben took a risk and now has money and contributed something to the economy. You stay average because you decide to be a workslave.
>>1088803 >Why do you want to increase your own wealth while impoverishing everyone else? Except unless you're in Somalia thats not how it works. In order for someone to give you money, you have to provide a service or product they're willing to pay for, supposedly to enrich their lives.
>>1089277 It's hyperbole, sure, but if you took things at face value /biz/ would be the preferred hangout of the the whole of the world's financial elite. And the few people who can give valuable advice waste their time in trying to give it to people dumb enough to ask 4chan for financial advice in the first place.
>>1088803 I'm an average person and nobody gives a shit about me. Learn to take care of yourself faggot.
I probabaly grew up more poor than most on here and I can ensure you that the poor are their own worst enemy. The rich aren't forcing them to have kids, spend money, go in debt and starve. Poor people do that shit for enjoyment kek. I have family members who sit in their shit hole trailer parks and say the exact shit you're saying but they do nothing to improve their situations besides bitching and whining.
They are lazy, entitled and do nothing to help themselves besides demand other peoples money. I despise poor people and their stupid ass spending habits.
>>1089303 I am trying to figure out a way to harness the raw energy and power of the industrial NEET complex. I am thinking about getting some poos to program a repulsion app for parents of NEETS, it automates harassment of the NEET in their natural habitat eventually deNEETing with minimal overhead.
>>1089302 >I have family members who sit in their shit hole trailer parks and say the exact shit you're saying but they do nothing to improve their situations besides bitching and whining. Preach, brotherman! Preach!
The lower class, from all backgrounds and ethnicities, are all crabs-in-a-bucket. When one crab does anything to improve his station in life, when he is trying to crawl out of the bucket, his peers will drag him down. I've seen this happen with my own eyes. It is heartbreaking.
>>1089332 It's not always true. 100 years ago America's poor included a fuckton of working class Irish and Chinese immigrants. They worked their asses off and rose out of it to join the middle class.
Now the stereotypes of Chinese are as restaurant or laundry (but this one's dying) owners, aka small business owners, or as doctors. While the stereotypes of Irish are basically nonexistent since their descendants are just lumped into white now.
>>1089338 >Corporations consider poverty and low credit score and asset They're not the only ones. It means there's a much better chance of you behaving recklessly, which equals more profit. It's like following people's stock recommendations on this board: What Not To Buy 101
>>1088811 >implying it isn't barely not a zero sum game Most people won't making anything from captial gains. Best is they can do is a mutual fund. Of course the economy grows exponentially for the most part so the wealth of a rich guy and a poor guy who both invest equally smart doesn't even have the decency to remain proportional.
In between businesses it's also an almost zero sum game. Businesses do nothing but try to grab a larger share of their market. Half of securities like futures and options are zero sum games. The stock market of any cunt is a zero sum game except the reward grows steadily.
