Everything adds up. I’ve seen both sides of it happen for myself and my clients. That’s not to say we don’t all have our times where we’re not at our best game, but they still show up to put in the work.
As I said, I’ve thought about this a little bit so I believe I can make a pretty convincing argument for the usefulness of inequality based on what we all learned from the game Monopoly. You see, the point of the game is to either own all the property or have all the money. Essentially you want your, opponents to be so broke that they can’t trade with you anymore and that, my friend, is a microcosm of what we call the Pareto distribution.
