  1. I read the article at PJM and it’s one of your best ones, I must say.

    One point I would add to the RS “most wealth these days is inherited” claim (which I don’t buy, btw) is that in many cases the inheritors (for example in a family business) worked as hard to create the wealth as the actual inheritor. Also, since when does anyone other than the person who is leaving the money have the right to judge whether someone “deserves” their inheritance or not?

    Also, the things you need to do to keep wealth is just as hard as what you need to do to attain it, and sometimes harder (unless you’re a politician ala Pelosi and John Kerry, who can use their political power to help maintain their married into/inherited wealth much more easily.)

  2. #1, Thanks for the nice words. Research on inherited vs. “you built that” wealth would be interesting — esp if, as you indicated, you can separate the people who continued to build existing businesses and enterprises to the trust-fund crowd.
