Are there any genuinely wealthy people on .gs? I don't just mean a high paying job or flash car, but those who have assets, own multiple properties, are business owners, and so on.

Lend me a tenner?

Honest answer is that I'm a young man coming up against some harsh realities about what my ambitions will really cost, and what I'd like to leave behind.

In my effort to be practical and put a price tag on what I want out of life, I've found that it's well above what I could ever expect to earn in my current career.

I ask here on .gs because it's a fair spread of surprisingly like minded people.

I can't help but get the impression you're an entitled retard.

Entitled in what way? I have certain things in mind that I want out of life and I'm figuring out ways to attain them.

I was hoping to learn about people from .gs who've been able to make that happen for themselves.

I don't know if I qualify in quite the way you want, but I run my own brick and mortar business and do alright by it, especially considering I'm still under 30.

All I know is once you earn about £40k a year you can have basically everything you want, unless you're hellbent on buying solid gold toilets and the like.

Actually, this is worth a punt. Nothing to lose and all.

Myself and some very seasoned firm makers are looking for funding for a film. Our rough basemark is 500k - can be provided in large lumps, not one person providing all of it.

As I believe British films qualify you for massive tax avoidance maybe one of you lads is interested. Obviously this would be arranged legally, professionally and formally and all.

I agree there are other important forms of 'wealth' to strive for in life. In this thread, though, I am referring specifically to material wealth, in particular the ability to invest in assets, properties or businesses which increase in monetary value over time.

Such an idiotic comment. Try being poor, especially when you have health problems or are nearing retirement.

It is horrific to be poor in the UK and it is very difficult to build capital and wealth from a position of disadvantage. The opportunities wealth gives you is enormous. And I am saying this as someone who is relatively wealthy.

It's true that the poorest in India or the Central African Republic are likely going to be worse off than the poorest British in absolute terms.

For what it's worth, though, there is pretty good evidence that in terms of general health and quality of life, the middle classes in poorer countries are far better off than many of the poor working class in the United Kingdom, despite earning far less overall. Even when adjusted for purchasing power, a big part of avoiding destructive behaviours and advancing socially is about being able to meaningfully participate in society. This is backed up by sound public health research.

My unsupported personal opinion: wealth seems to act like a multiplier to other factors like education and decent work.

In lots of countries, you can have no money whatsoever and still live in a tropical paradise with no worries whatsoever. Convincing the average Briton that they're very wealthy because only whatever everyone in Britain already has in abundance counts as wealth has been an astonishingly successful strategy in getting Britons to put up with truly monumental amounts of bullshit.

*Unless you get sick, get on the wrong side of the local gang or a host of other problems where you end up dead.

If you want to go on idolizing life in a 'tropical paradise' I suggest you try being gay in Jamaica, have cancer in Nigeria or simply live in a South African slum. You may find the experience very different to your antiquated stereotypes of childlike civilizations.

Exactly this - if you're healthy and don't need any help from the state in any way, there are lots of cheaper places to live. Most of us will probably not go our entire lives without needing state help, sadly.

I didn't say everywhere in the tropics is a paradise. The point I was trying to make is that there are plenty of very poor places (uncontacted tribes, Pacific islands, etc.) where people live very happily from the cradle to the grave, in spite of the lack of creature comforts. Good luck finding that in Britain.

I've seen no proof of this.

Maybe uncontacted tribes could enjoy their open air zoos through ignorance but the rates of homicide and domestic violence in such societies is not something I'd be comfortable with. They don't always seem so keen either given contact with civilization fucks them up not just from unsavoury influence but because people naturally leave for a better life even if its somewhere ghastly like Papua New Guinea.

No thank you, I very much prefer a nice cup of tea and bit of telly even if I can't walk around with my bollocks out.

What the fuck would either of you know about uncontacted tribes? How exactly can reliable data be obtained about communities it is inherently impossible to live amongst?

And as for the first cunt, one of the first Google results for 'uncontacted tribes' is a BBC article explaining in all likelihood such tribes choose to remain isolated because they have learnt contact usually results in exploitation and disease.

Decades of research on tribes that do get contacted. Unless the fucking Tellytubbies are out there we can draw conclusions of certain norms. As for your next claim, of course certain tribes learn to be hostile to outsiders (e.g. Sentinelese) but it comes from violent contact with unsavoury types.
