But the OP was about Dave Thomas, someone who had millions to start with. His "risk" is having to live like the top 10-20%, rather than the top 1%, and I find the expectations of reward-entitlements for taking that kind of "risk" to be grossly exaggerated.

That is very true.

But an even worse distortion in our system is when someone can risk virtually no capital and find those say super-sized monetary results.
For example, the Kardashins and other media stars, atheletes and the like.

It is amaing that there are so many so willing to rant against those that risk their capital and get rewards, but those who risk almost nothing (except their celebrity reputation) get a pass.
