Recommended reading from a fellow beek. This book by Henry George looks at and attempts to explain, Why, as civilization/industry advances, does the gap between rich/poor increase. An interesting theory emerges as current economic theory is questioned and shown faulty.
The solution?  I recommend starting there and reading backward.

Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

I own several copies of P & P.  The oldest (1933) is my Grandmothers old copy, worn and filled with her own ideas, notations and loaded with the 'flowery' language of the late 1800's.  A real treasure IMO.

If it was up to me  laugh The concepts and advise from HG would be common knowledge by the time our children leave High School IMO, instead of being purposely suppressed…….for sinister means………in the 'land of the FREE'.  rolleyes

How different might our world be if the citizenry had even a 'basic' understanding of the natural LAWS of a "RESOURCE BASED" Economy and were no longer at the mercy of the wealthy elite for whatever scraps they passed down?
