As in the title, I'm curious to know if in you opinion our economy work in a meritocratic way, promoting people that deserve wealthy and penalize who doesn't deserve nothing ?

Thanks.

Deserve something/nothing based on what principles? What standards do you set for who deserves or not something? You will get 5 answers for every 3 people you ask. At least three depending on whether you are Liberal, Conservative, Libertarian. Then it breaks down further...

The current world economy tends to reward those who were clever enough to choose rich parents.

Thread closed. There is no "our economy" -- each country has its own economic policy.
