What is wealh? What is rich? In economics, there is a difference. A black man on the street can have one million dollars in his pocket making him rich. He gets pulled over by a corrupt cop and the cop takes his money and says its drug money and keeps it to himself. The black man is now poor. Enter Ben Bernake...he is wealthy. He went to prison as a wealthy man. The gov't had to have a seperate court hearing/charges to take his wealth which waw in propertg and whatnot. A man in prison is wealthier than the person on the street. Now, what is money? An agreed upon physical/tangible item that represents something else, usually made of worthless paper. If Jesus was born in the year 0 AD and had one trillion dollars, how much would he have to spend in one day to spend it all by today? Thats one trillion divided by 2015= $496,277,916/year. Then 12 months= $41356493 that would need to be spent monthly. Daily is: $1378549.77. And hourly is $57439.57. And $957.33/minute. And lastly, $15.96/second, more than the majority of the nation is making an hour. Isn't education in economics fun? So to all capitalists, define capitalism without using a dictionary and then go look it up, the word private appears in that definition. So what does private mean?
