It’s worthwhile to point out that, similarly to Mr. Correia, Dave Ramsey has been both up and down in his financial life. Kinda takes some steam out of the argument that you can’t move upward in America anymore.

I don’t know. I don’t think Ramsey is entirely being fair when he says that all it takes in this country is some creativity and effort to get rich. If you have to support a family, or you’re in debt, or you don’t have any starting capital or collateral, maybe you can’t spend a year or five getting a business off the ground. And not everyone is that creative or focused, or knows how to run a business. Sure, for him, it’s as easy as getting a library card (or not, since he’s had his down times too…), but he’s… Read more »
