As a society, we’re fascinated by stories of the rich. We hear news, see social media posts, and read books about how others become wealthy, how to maintain that status, and what their lifestyles look like.
But what if the media we’re consuming is misleading us?
Dr. Seth Stephens-Davidowitz’s research shows that the stories about the rich that dominate the popular press are misleading.
Stephens-Davidowitz holds a PhD in economics from Harvard University. He’s a data scientist and a New York Times bestselling author.
In today’s episode, we discuss the misleading stories around the rich. We unearth the truth behind those stories, using data rather than narrative.
We explore the types of businesses that quietly make people millionaires. We describe the ages, occupations and locations of people that become rich, and the unexpected paths they take to achieve this. And we share actionable takeaways that will help you do the same.
