Do you see the inequality in the world around you? Do you want to be part of a movement to change things for the better? Do you want to solve one of the world’s biggest problems?
The world’s wealth is trapped, but maybe not in the places you imagine. All too often, the conversation about wealth inequality focuses on the ultra-wealthy entrepreneurs of the world when the real problem is much bigger.
Money is siphoned out of the real economy every, single day. It becomes trapped in complex financial investment products, where it grows without ever contributing to the real world; the world where the people are.
This isn’t a problem that can be solved with a Robin Hood tax or by murdering the rich and redistributing their wealth to the poor. That is a drop in the ocean.
If that isn’t the solution, then what is? You’ll find the answers in this book.
Jeremy Harbour believes there is a way to work within our existing economic systems to tap into that vast ocean of wealth that is currently trapped
He believes small businesses and entrepreneurs hold the key to increasing the wealth of everyone, wherever they are in the world.
He believes that there is a better way to redress the balance and make more people and communities wealthy.
Join him to learn where the real issues with wealth inequality lie, why past attempts to tackle this problem have failed, and why he believes he has a solution that can help. He is part of the 1% and makes no apologies for that, having built his career from the ground up, as an entrepreneur and within small businesses.
This is why he knows the power we have to attract wealth into communities, and why this is at the center of his strategy for democratizing wealth.
In this book, he explains how we can make small business an investable asset class using agglomeration and how, in doing so, we can unleash a tsunami of money into our communities, make more people wealthy, and tackle the huge issue of wealth inequality.
We can build a better future and democratize wealth. There’s no need to murder the rich.
