ARTICLE of the week  

The plight of the poor should be our focus, not inequality – CHRIS HATTINGH

According to Oxfam, a new billionaire was created every two days in 2018. What an incredible, remarkable phenomenon. Never have people created so much wealth for themselves through businesses and trading. Before the advent of capitalism, the only way wealth could be created was through force. Why are we decrying the remarkable effects of freedom -- that you can make wealth by producing goods and services for others?

Throughout the years, Oxfam never adequately answered the question of how the people it condemns created their wealth in the first place. Wealth, in and of itself, is not immoral. To create wealth for oneself and one’s descendants, you look at the world around you, taking into consideration available resources, talents and interests. You find opportunities in the needs and desires of other people. At the most fundamental level, to create wealth, you must think. Creating wealth means that you need to appeal to people’s interests -- you cannot force them to give you their money.
