In my opinion, the rich do get richer because basically everything is on sale, stocks, real estate, businesses, etc... If you know anything about the rich, you know that you get a lot of stuff for free and other people want to pay for them, like dinner, drinks, free tickets to events. When your poor, you pay for everything. Being rich is not a bad thing, but most poor people hate the rich and think it's unfair. The rich sacrifice a lot of there life to their work, that's why they are rich, poor people....well, you figure it out.
