@matiu_bidule Actually, from what you show in this picture, Bill Gates is the one that makes me feel more respect. Love ya mama!!
@matiu_bidule We call that cherry picking. To be clear the majority of rich people in the USA started from middle class or lower.
68% of billionaires are self-made (not born into inheritance)
Cool story bro. Try reading the report, it doesnt say that.
The report has 6 buckets it analyzes. One, the lowest is the 30mil threshold, the top is the 1 bil+ bucket. Yes the report explicitly covers billionaires along side other categories of wealth.
Like i said, if you want to criticize something, read first, talk second.
I'm not saying billionaires can't be self made, just that the link you've provided does not say that billionaires are 68% self made, and that the stats for people with 30m aren't applicable to billionaires.
Ahh I see what you mean now. That was the wrong link and the figure is slightly lower:
Thats the source of the actual report, and the 1bil + who are self made appear to be 55.8% not 68%.
My apologies I thought I was linking to the report.
I've seen the >50% self-made/middle-class figure for billionairs from half a dozen to a dozen sources over the years. If you are skeptical of this report there are quite a few others you can reference if you'd like. the numbers vary slightly but they are usually close to or above 50% in all the ones I've seen using different methodologies.
@matiu_bidule Try doing research instead of random memes. 68% of the world's billionaires are self-made:
Ah ah ah je n'en suis pas l'auteur, je diffuse juste...
Et concernant le "dur travail" de Elon Musk... ce headshot en 2 partie devrait calmer les fanboy du bouffon libertarien :
Musk qui essaye de vanner Sanders.. et qui se prend un headshot d'anthologie par Chuck Currie, lui rappelant la façon dont il doit sa fortune au sauvetage de son entreprise par l'argent public... 😂😁😜
