6. You are using the British model while I wrote about the Founding Fathers view of capitalism

The full effects of the Industrial Revolution in America (first mill wasn't here till 1790) and didn't take full effect until after the influence of most of the Founding Fathers was over, and really after many of them died and obviously hadn't seen its full deleterious effects. Of course that was the first one. The real explosion of economic inequality came later, and as I learned in college many years ago, its effects were not at all what the Founding Fathers had in mind for this country.
