and most of the alternatives are worse
I always am amused by those who apparently have failed personal economics 101, yet they are the ones most willing to claim other people "Don't understand"
here is a fact
investments make money-if they didn't, this country would fall apart
I make a lot more than I spend. even with confiscatory tax rates of near 50% I still have a few Hundred K left over every year. and I invest that carefully. Meaning each year, I am wealthier than I was the year before
people who spent more than they bring in don't get richer
