It's a hopeful sign that ever more folks appear to be reading or referring to Adam Smith, who today would be a democrat. Smith knew inherited wealth led to cheating, feudalism and especially "rent-seeking" in which lords and moguls "invest" not in productive, job-making industry but in jiggering the rules so that they get even richer by parasitism. It is the exact opposite of what we were promised from Supply Side "economics" but it is what Smith and nearly all economists predicted would happen with gigantic, budget busting tax gifts to the rich. (No wonder Fox wages war on economics, and science and every other knowledge profession.)
Now the proof - an analysis shows that 74% of billionaire wealth in America was acquired not through competitive goods and services but by Rent Seeking and rigging the economy. And, as Smith predicted, this harms the wealth creating middle class.
In that 26% who earned great wealth are the tech moguls. And guess what? Some of them are libertarians. Most are democrats! Very few are republicans. Because these are the folks who know they owe everything to the middle class that most of them came from, to the middle class engineers they work with, and to the civilization and nation that made it all possible.
