There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.

Obama's 'Grand Bargain' Tax Plan Is Hard Sell to GOP : Roll Call Policy

Cashflow is not the transfer of wealth, per se. If I buy your product, I have exchanged my cash for your product. Unless your product is worthless, my wealth didn't actually decrease. If your product is a house, for example, I might be wealthier than I was before I bought your house, depending on what I paid for it compared to the value of it. Wealth isn't just money. It's all your assets; everything you own. It is your assets minus your liabilities. That's wealth.
Cashflow can be negative or positive in regard to your wealth. So you are right... cashflow isn't the source of wealth but neither is it, necessarily, the transfer of wealth.
If you want to know the real basis for wealth, it's this: Be good at trading and produce more than you consume. If you do that, you'll get wealthier.
You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.
