"A Billionaire Is Someone Who Runs a Very Important Tollbooth... Put another way, the Bloomberg billionaire index isn’t a list of the most important Scrooge McDuck’s, it’s a list of the biggest tollbooth operators in the world... they are (largely) men with a strategic position of power protected by public laws and rules... At the end of the day, tollbooths are nothing but bottlenecks on a road on which we would otherwise travel faster and more freely."
