The rich don't get and stay rich by doing hard work to pay for what they want and have. They get theirs by having us do hard work to pay for what they have. You can say that's ours and their choices in a "free" market world or that it's a master and slave relationship. Ultimately the wealth produced by the community is distributed in the same way, no matter how we label the system that distributes it.
Only the knuckle dragging conservative base and wide eyed Libertarians could believe all the Trumpeted shit about the economy, the tax cut or anything else the idiots who own the world are saying and doing.
The distribution of wealth is the only meaningful measure of the value of a culture or economy.
