This month at the MKAI Inclusive Forum on Today’s Billionaire – How we can initiate a global epiphany for a fairer future
We live in a time when the child of a working single parent can become a billionaire, and the fact this is possible shows the success of our free markets and the empowerment of each individual.
The disadvantage of this notion is the widespread belief that everyone is self-made. This myth, perhaps, has become hard-wired into our psyche, preventing us from acknowledging that we are a product of our culture, of luck, and that we are born into an era of extreme wealth, prosperity, and opportunity. The concept of individual merit, effort, and talent is pervasive in contemporary communities.
Whilst laudable, it is questionable whether such traits should permit an individual to gain and hold on to vast wealth. In some cases, more money than they could ever spend.
