Many people are successful in accumulating wealth, and some are better than others. And a few are extremely successful. Then above them is the small group of ultra awesome accumulators.

Thousands join the hunt every day, chasing their little (or large) pot of gold.

But surely global wealth is finite. There must only be a certain amount available for discovery/development, unless it has been artificially created, in which case it is actually false wealth and does not exist.

So, if the majority of the world’s wealth is flowing to the minority (rich) of the population, then the reaction must certainly be an opposite  flow of poverty to the majority.

And as these flows continue, they will increase at an exponential rate, until finally, all wealth is in 1 persons pocket, and the rest of us are starving and begging for food.

But have faith; we have been saved from this disaster.

Various governments around the world, in their infinite wisdom, have foreseen the possibility of this and counteract it with the only weapon they have. Tax.

A shrewd assortment of  government taxes limit this flow and prevent that final concentration of all wealth.

Therefore, the more tax we pay, the less chance we have of poverty.

Government taxes, the ultimate defence against mass starvation.

I rest my case, it’s time for lunch.
