The Five Sources of Wealth

Posted 2 years ago | Originally written on 10 Apr 2022

As far as I can tell, there are only five sources of wealth:

  1. Inheritance
  2. Luck
  3. Creativity (not mere imagination)
  4. Talent (at a world class standard)
  5. Theft (like most politicians in poor countries)

Only one is within most peoples control and not subject to sudden loss: creativity.
