    I love that question - who is going to pay for that?

    They are to blame Taku, how dare they hoard all the money that rightfully belongs to those who have not created it.

    Are all your friends gladly going to pay 90% tax?

    What she doesn't realise is that wealth is created by adding value and solving problems - service.

    The more people you serve and add value to, the wealthier you become.

    There is a need to connect and decipher what people want - it takes skill.

    The more people who know you, the more wealthier you are - networking.

    Wealth creation is a simple formula (in developed countries)

    If you sit there impotent and wait for others to create it and just hand it over to you because you think they are hoarding what is yours, you will always be frustrated and disappointed because now your financial well being is in the hands of others and open to unfairness, discrimination, and everything else.

    I for one would rather be in total control and depend on no one.

    Couldn't agree more @Xenia. Until she makes herself accountable and stop blaming others, she will always be in a place of helplessness because she won't feel as though she is ever in control.

    There's an economy of scale as well, often the harder you work the more value you can create.
    Sometimes just to get over the hump of admin and the base level of what the average day throws at you, you need to put in alot of extra time to work on things.

    It's this extra time that usually gets payback, not just in providing value at what you're doing today but growing your experience and making yourself more valuable. Like compound interest but on yourself :)

    Those that cry about the 1% I think believe everyone is working the same amount and putting in the same effort, when the opposite is the case. Usually people look at someone who has really made it and think "wow that person was really lucky to find that opportunity or idea and be in the right place at the right time". But usually there is a ****load of hard work and long term diligence behind the scenes that nobody would believe if you told them.

    Look at a successful property investor.
    After a Sydney boom, the average guy has sold his investment property and purchased a Maserati.
    The dedicated investor has foregone material waste of his capital, and doubled down into another state with another property for another cycle. In doing this, they have spent countless hours invested on the research and acquisition.
    Compound these good and bad behaviors over time, and you have the result the hard worker is in the 1%, the guy who took the fun way out is not - but he shouldn't complain if he really had a good time :)

    Nice. The SJW/professional victim/everything I don't agree with = bullying movement is finally starting to be thrown under the bus.

    I think the minimum wage in America should be increased... its crazy some people work 3 jobs just to have enough to live on. But free uni/college.. that ain't going to happen. But from what I've read many dollar wise American students go to community college for 2 years then do the final year at a more prestigious institution... and come out with substantially lower student debt.

    Trying to simply get handouts from those more well off.... :rolleyes:well, I agree with you guys. You have to be accountable and take control of your own life....

    Didn't even get 3 mins into the video and id had enough..

    The only point I can make in her defence is that it is youthful enthusiasm, not knowledge of economics etc.
    She is standing up for student rights - which are probably her world ATM, without knowledge of much else.

    At 19 years old majority of us were not game enough to stand up against he system and fight for a cause we believed in.

    Just because the mechanism of what she wants to achieve is defunct doesn't mean that what she was fighting for is not valid.

    She def needs to do a quick economics 101 course though..

    Not that I agree with anything she says, but it would have been nice for that rude pr!ck to let her finish even ONE sentence.

    I would like to have seen her tee off on him for that.

    She wrecked her argument for me though when she said she was from a working class family and that her family was already of a few different forms of Gubb assistance.

    They want free public education and all students debt cancelled. What about free housing? That should be included.

    No ones forcing them to go to college?

    Nothings preventing them from getting a job or creating their own.

    I see it all the time with my casual workforce with them going from one university course to another well into their mid twenties and I think to myself what a waste of time and money...imagine if I was actually paying for it as well!!:eek::eek:

    If you'd like to get all riled up about self entitled students of an Australian variety, go have a look at all the students up in arms about the current government talking about making people who leave Australia still pay their HECS debts.
