Occupy Wall Street: Thoughts from a Member of the One Percent « Venture Capital

I passed not one, but two marches uptown to Times Square and walked along with them for a while. New York City is in the throes of the OccupyWallStreet protests. What was most noticeable to me was not the protestors and their signs and chants; it was the amount of police accompanying them. It was a massive show of force. And it was scary to see. I’ve been thinking a lot about this movement, what it means, and what it could lead to.

I spent a good part of Thursday afternoon in Zuccotti Park. Les plus grosses fortunes de France ne sont pas toutes au CAC 40 ! Le triomphe des riches. On s'en doutait un peu, mais la confirmation est officielle : en France, les inégalités se creusent.

Le triomphe des riches

Mais elles ne se creusent pas par le bas, par l'accroissement de la part des pauvres dans la population. Elles se creusent par le haut, les riches devenant sans cesse plus riches. Les chiffres que vient de publier l'Insee dans sa publication annuelle sur « Les revenus et le patrimoine des ménages » [1] sont sans appel.

The 1% are the very best destroyers of wealth the world has ever seen

The claims that the ultra-rich 1% make for themselves – that they are possessed of unique intelligence or creativity or drive – are examples of the self-attribution fallacy. This means crediting yourself with outcomes for which you weren't responsible. Many of those who are rich today got there because they were able to capture certain jobs. This capture owes less to talent and intelligence than to a combination of the ruthless exploitation of others and accidents of birth, as such jobs are taken disproportionately by people born in certain places and into certain classes.

The findings of the psychologist Daniel Kahneman, winner of a Nobel economics prize, are devastating to the beliefs that financial high-fliers entertain about themselves.
