Here are a couple of things I know about poverty in a capitalist society: 1) It’s never going to go away, since someone is always going to be at the bottom, and 2) You can avoid poverty by making specific moves early in life. Much of this comes down to training and how well your parents prepare you to get ahead of the curve.
In this video, I break down four financial moves that parents can make to put their child ahead of the economic curve. It doesn’t matter if you start off poor, middle class, or wealthy, the economic game is typically won by those who receive the best preparation.
You can watch the video to get a sense of what I’m talking about. There is no law saying that you have to remain poor.
