1903: I believe the U.S. education system was taken over when the General Education Board, founded by John D. Rockefeller, decided what kids should learn. This put the influence of education in the hands of the ultrarich, and the subject of money was not taught in school. Today, people go to school to learn to work for money, but they learn nothing about how to have money work for them.
There are four expenses that keep the poor and middle class struggling financially. They are:
1. Taxes -- both apparent and hidden
2. Debt -- mortgages, credit cards, and student loans.
3. Inflation -- rising food and fuel costs
4. Retirement plans -- 401(k) and savings
It is via these four expenses that the rich get richer. In other words, all four of these expenses are a cash heists, the ways the rich use the government to get into our pockets, draining us of our wealth.
