Don’t begrudge the businessman. Lipton gets a column in the Observer

 

A billionaire who operates a financial company or a tech firm is — I think — of greater collective value to society than a footballer that is paid millions for scoring a goal

MEMBERS of the productive class provide services that the market demands, so whenever entrepreneurs accumulate wealth consumers obtain a product that is often used to enrich the quality of their lives, therefore wealth creation should not be seen as a zero-sum game.
