Quite right. It is within the "wealth elite's" best interest to encourage optimum and widespread wealth distribution. Not only does more liquidity amongst more people have a supportive effect on stable economies thus perpetuating their position of emminence, it eventually becomes a matter of self-survival. Wealth is ultimately osmotic, and if the wealthy do not distribute it willingly, it will be increasingly eroded by the apparati needed to hoard it.
