It's the cult of fiat money. A simple savings account could maintain purchasing power before 1971. The wealth gap grew wider after hedging became essential to financial planning. The financial sector's share of GDP exploded in the post-1971 world. The poor have less access to these services or less expertise in general. They fall further behind as the rich get richer.
