Can everyone in the world be rich?


If there were a system, or procedure in which anyone in the world who used it would be rich, what fundamental properties would that system entail? By rich I mean having the ability to trade for or purchase anything a person desires.

    Thank you for your insight. I had not considered the case where you want a unique item that someone else possesses. The system would have to be able to generate an option in even that case.

    Thank you for your insights. It is obvious now that the redistribution of wealth will fail for the reasons you have given. Therefore the system that I am looking for cannot redistribute wealth, it must create it. It must create new valuable products

    Thank you for your opinion. By rich I mean able to trade for or buy anything that person desires, not just life. I am trying to define the requirements for such a system and want peoples input. This must work even for those who cant save a thing.

    Do you think that it's also possible to think of communism as a system where the gov owns the means of production in a society, and capitalism is privately owned industry? If so there could be a capitalistic system with the same benefits right?
