Thats a terribly fatalistic and pessimistic point of view. The quantity of wealth and the overall size of the economy in the US (and most western nations) consistently grows faster than both inflation and population. If you look at historical income statistics, EVERY income level is increasing (even taking inflation into account). One person's success does not require the failure of others - quite the contrary: A successful person usually takes others along for the ride.Originally posted by Raven
The American dream is simply that -- a dream.
It just doesn't add for me. There are no gains with no losses. When someone rises another falls.
