The American dream.

Now you know why the call it a dream.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Unfortunately the poor find out that the only way to live the American dream is to deal in drugs.
That's why the US has the largest prison population in the world even though it has only 1/4 the
population of either India or China.

The illegal drug trade is the purest form of capitalism.

These poor, law abiding Chinese will never get further than lower middle class and work their lives
away chasing a dream that will never come true.

Of course you will see the exceptions. That is marketing. The owners of the US have to market the dream.

But in reality your chances of being one of those exceptions is about the same as winning the lottery.
