The Real Secret of the Super Rich?

I found an interesting series of blog articles, starting here:


What caught my interest isn't so much that this reveals any surprising secrets, but that it is a reasonable mathematical analysis of the value of education and ability explained in simple terms. Simplified, but it makes a good point all the same.

I am less certain about the author's holistic politics, which are also interesting. However, I don't really have the time or energy right now to evaluate this properly. I do see a certain appeal in his mathematical approach to politics, but I remain skeptical that this approach can't be manipulated to fit specific goals, rather than the math driving the policy.
