If economics can be seen as the study of the creation of wealth,

politics can be seen as the study of the distribution of wealth.

The Golden Rule:

“Whoever has the gold, makes the rules.”

Politics is the study of power:

the Right and the Left

individualism and collectivism

short-termism and long-termism

“the haves” and “have nots”

capital and labour

The richest 350 people in the world,

have as much wealth as

the poorest 3.5 billion people (half the planet).

Wealth Distribution


Power, Authority and Legitimacy
