JeanDavis:"The most common (but not the only) path to wealth is to inherit it."

Actually, only a small percentage (under 25%) of millionaires 'inherit' their wealth.

That's a 'wealth envy' myth.

Not only that, but 15% of those fall out of the millionaire category each year and others enter.....

(ie, folks die, donate to charity, take massive business losses, lose big int he stock market, etc)
