23. Bingo

The trouble is the whole system of human organization runs off risk management and the profit incentive. If you remove those two, no one will produce anything, it's too risky and there is no incentive. Socializing the output - communism - lacks incentive, and worker-coops are fiercely opposed by the existing system. So the system produces as it does, and one has to make one's way in it. Cultural influences keep one, often generation after generation, in the same role relative to the system. Workers remain workers. Kiyosaki understands this with his 4 grid hierarchy - are you a worker, self-employed, business owner, or investor (capitalist)? Americans, even in personal finance, are not taught these roles very often. We just muddle onward.

Looks like a good read, I will check it out, thanks.
