How Paul Graham gets it wrong in “Economic Inequality”
Seth Bannon

“Furthermore, it is absolutely true, as Warren Buffet said, that “the poor are most definitely not poor because the rich are rich.” — Sorry, Seth, but just because Warren Buffet says so it does not make it “absolutely true”! In fact the opposite is true and becoming ever more so since Government has taken it up to help capitalism syphon wealth from lower to the higher strata of society! The reason Buffet states that is because he is a very rich guy who does not really want to face the fact that he is directly or indirectly exploiting people poorer than him! Can you blame him for believing it? No, but you should no better than that at least while you are well minded “social entrepeneur” and not yet a millionaire or billionaire. Please, think for yourself.
