On poverty and riches …

At the root of most riches and most poverty is a cultural heritage; and not just a personal one, but family, community, racial, generational, gender, national, racial and even geographical. The rich become rich because the rich are rich. The poor become poor because the poor are poor. Any explanation of success or failure which does not account for this is mostly wrong.
