He often states that the rich are necessary because they lead our economy and that their money helps them to do so. Then later in the books he calls the rich greedy and that they have more money than enough money for them to have a luxurious life. He is basically saying that while some families are struggling to have at least one meal a day, the rich just save/blow money on useless things. He quotes on pg. 20 that “The poor cannot be expected to save, because they need every dollar for basic needs such as food and shelter.
But Dr. Roberts explains the benefits and costs of free markets and trade in a clear and cogent manner again and again in various scenarios. Of particular value are the treatments of the concepts of 'fair-trade' and so-called trade deficits. These two issues are some of the most divisive and controversial parts of the trade debate. As expected, Dr. Roberts explains the facts in a way that just about anyone can understand. Dr. Roberts also illustrates how we use what he calls the roundabout way to wealth to explain how we get richer when we specialize and trade.
Here's a ton of cash, why don't you have some?" Eventually FDR was able to create a Hollow Economy, a state in which the economy appears to be flourishing, but in reality, the rich are getting richer, and the poor poorer.

The main idea of Colbert’s help in finances was to make the country itself profitable and become financially independent. Colbert did this by pointing out many of the mistakes and opportunities available to France as well as by implementing more mercantilist policies and using its colonies to their full potential. One of the things Colbert paid particular attention to was France’s neighbor, the Dutch. By looking at the amount of trade and profits the Dutch brought home, Colbert was able to analyze the opportunities France had by either cutting off the Dutch or by taking advantage of the same strategy. For example, Colbert noticed that the Dutch were bring back two million in cash through trading with the French-West Indies because they were trading their German goods for sugar, tobacco, and dyestuffs in and then processed them in order to export them later.
He targeted audience are mainly the well educated wealth men of his day that have large amount sums of wealth. He urged that the best use of surplus wealth was to donate or distribute it among the public in ways that wasn’t wasteful. That was one of his three modes in which extra wealth can be disposed of. The other two were that it could be left to the families of the descendents or it can be bequeathed, or left to somebody in a will.

The judge wanted everyone to think he was so innocent, but in fact, he was overwhelmingly selfish. Judge Pyncheon is similar to Cap, from The Pathfinder. Although he is not the most visible antagonist in the novel, his attitude of greed, superiority, and ignorance, cause him to be intellectually blinded. He is unable to judge the people around him, and puts his trust in the worst villains, such as the Tuscarora Arrowhead, and Corporal Muir, while being suspicious of the faithful Jasper. Cap and Judge Pyncheon are similar because they both have their outrageous moments.
This inherent trait leaves Pete blinded to anything other than money, success and high expectations. It doesn’t allow him to see the good in not only others but also in himself. Pete was also jealous of the way their mother coddled Donald and lied when Donald asked him what he dreamt about. He claimed he only dreamt about sex and money, when in reality he dreams of Donald often, usually with Pete being vulnerable while Donald acts as his aid. This is because he feels guilty for the violent acts he committed against Donald when they were younger.
