Why we have narcissistic rich guys

I like this:

The job of billionaires is to live a better life, and while doing that pay for it to go from being an expensive luxury to a cheap and universal commonplace.

People moan about “trickle down” economics, often claiming that it doesn’t even happen. I only have to look at my flat screen TV, upon which I am now happily watching cricket, to know that this is wrong.

  1. I’m pretty sure that bicycle mechanics – even in the 1900s – were never “rich”.

    Is there a precedent for this sort of thing? The only one I can think of off the top of my head is Charles Rolls, who after co-founding Rolls-Royce gained the distinction of being the first Briton to die in a plane crash.
