CREATION OF WEALTH IS NOT A ZERO SUM GAME

An enduring myth in the liberal and progressive mind is the idea that wealth is a zero sum game, that for one person to gain another person must lose. Companion to that belief is the assumption that a rich man’s wealth is an appropriation from the poor. This then becomes the basis for the claim that “social justice” not only justifies but requires taking from the rich and giving to the poor, or “spreading the wealth around”.

Whittle’s use of simple illustrations reduces a difficult concept to something anyone can understand.
