>I know a lot of dumb, rude and vulgar people that are far from poor.
I can fathom how skilled, intelligent, hard-working, conscientious people get rich, but that's trivial and not very interesting, since I can hardly make myself smarter, and making myself more hard-working would be hard.
It would be much more useful to understand how idiots come into money, because acting stupid is something I think I could potentially pull of.
But you probably are right and most of them just inherit their wealth.>>80265

Running into the ground is sometimes required to re-allocate capital to more profitable ventures. Imagine yourself to be the heir of a weaving mill in 1970. With 20-20 hindsight, should you try to run it as good as you can, invest your time and money in trying to keep it competitive, or take the profits, invest your time and money into an industry that will still exist at the time you retire?
