Rich People Think They’re Better at Stuff Than They Are…

…but that confidence helps them out

If you’re wondering how MORONS with money somehow keep falling backward into even more money . . . this is it.

A new study out of the University of Virginia found wealthy people tend to THINK they’re better at stuff than they actually are.

But because the world is unfair, they don’t get exposed.

Instead, that overconfidence actually HELPS them, because it comes off as competence during interviews, so they get hired for better jobs.

The researchers say this also helps explain how, quote, “class hierarchies perpetuate from one generation to the next” . . . or, in other words, how rich people’s idiot kids manage to also get rich when they can barely tie their shoes.
