They're functionally innumerate. And in a 'capitalist' society, that's a very queer situation.
Any 16-year-old, beginning a 60-year driving career, banking the savings from AeroCivic into an Index Fund, by time of retirement, would have saved enough to pay cash for a Rolls-Royce.
Get Rich Slow is not a concept acceptable to capitalists.Only Get Poor Slow.
