Sure, there are different reasons, but the biggest reason is this: at least half of the rich are rich because of inheritance.  I'm not sure how ruthless or smart one needs to be to come chargin' outta that privileged uterus.  Here's how it was in 1997: not much different today.

Hey B26,

Thanks for the interesting link! I've been curious to see a breakdown like this and it's good to see some actual data to support what should be obvious to anyone who's been paying attention: It's the first $million that's the difficult part.

Now if only there were similar reports to confirm another suspicion -- that most all of the world's largest fortunes were built on fraud or other crimes -- the story would be a lot closer to complete.

Cheers,

Hi, I'm here to insult mt. gox constantly for the complete ineptness of it's owner, his failure to do anything reasonable to protect his website, and to beg Kevin to keep every last dime he can get a hold of in the hopes that pathetic excuse for an exchange gets tanked and the owner is left destitute. That is what he deserves.



Those 600 or so BTC are rightfully yours.

Uses OpenID for login and can be accessed from a mobile device. Currently looking for some beta-testers! Thanks.

Hi,

I'm Tom and yes, I know, I have a stupid username (tominator).  Tongue

I've been following bitcoins for a little over a month now and I have made about $1,000 now just by mining and selling coins using a couple of my computers.

By trade, I'm a web developer and computer programmer.

I tend to lurk a lot on the forums and on reddit.com/r/bitcoin, just reading and hardly every saying much. Every now and then I see someone posting something similar to my viewpoints on things, but I'm finally getting to a point where I feel like piping up with a comment or two of my own, which is why I came here to introduce myself.

So yeah. That's me.

And that's all I have to say about that... until I post another reply, that is.
