Bill Gates may have more monetary wealth than everyone else in America, but what does that really mean?
"Bill Gates has has about 120,000 times more financial wealth than I have. But Bill Gates does not consume 120,000 times more food or calories than I consume. His food is not 120,000 times tastier than is my food. His children aren’t schooled by teachers who are 120,000 times better than are the teachers who school my son. Gates will not live 120,000 times longer than me. His house is not 120,000 times larger, or more comfortable, than is my house. He does not travel 120,000 times faster than I travel, or enjoy 120,000 times more days of leisure than I enjoy."
