To understand wealth and poverty…

Wealth isn’t just there: it’s not a physical object. No one can simply divide it up at will; and above all, the total amount of wealth can grow over time. And as anyone with eyes and even a little historical knowledge knows, it has grown over time. It hasn’t stayed the same. If we want to understand wealth and poverty, we must discard the icon of a static and uncreated pie.
