The myth of self-created millionaires

Quoting “Mitt Romney and the myth of self-created millionaires” by George Monbiot for The Guardian:
We could call it Romnesia: the ability of the very rich to forget the context in which they made their money. To forget their education, inheritance, family networks, contacts and introductions. To forget the workers whose labour enriched them. To forget the infrastructure and security, the educated workforce, the contracts, subsidies and bailouts the government provided.
It comes down to the question “How much more than normal employees should executives and company owners make?” And these are interesting points to consider.
