A forum only concerned with economics.
The new system favors the rich. So ... get rich.
What is stopping you? Actors are mostly people with no particular education or talent. The music world has a lot of people that can't sing worth sh1t and can't read music. Real estate sales? Politics? Well an education helps but isn't required. Sony Bono and many others had no experience or education in politics. Trump had none. Multi-Level Marketing.
Can everybody get rich? No. Can anybody get rich? Probably. Me? I'm an old man with one foot in the grave who never had a job I didn't enjoy. Rich wasn't a goal with me. I lived for my hobbies.
According to Senator Grassley (R. - Iowa), anybody who isn't rich spends all their spare money on booze and woman. I might do that too, if I had any spare money. :)
I never had a job that I enjoyed. That may be why its called working. At my age, 77, I enjoy life more than I ever did when I had a job.
Welcome to the forum.

I think your working definition of "rich" is a typical American one, based on perverted values. Your hobby comment makes your point. In my village I only have a relative clue as to how asset rich myneibhbors are, can´t tell by house or car. I don´t know what most of them do for a living, so if I had to classify them it would be a mixture of hobbies and volunteer community work.
Yes, "rich" is not defined very well. If you can't tell the difference there is none to speak of. If you don't bother to ask how much that Rolls Royce costs before you buy it you are rich.
I only worked to survive and feed, cloth, and shelter my progeny, mate and my self. My coaching career was short lived. I soon found out that people who wanted a coach couldn't afford to pay for one. Those who could afford to pay for coaching didn't think they needed one.
Happily I get SS , I now live very simply and am working to further simplify my life.

I can see that. There just isn't enough rich and lame people.
