I am afraid that from a superficial perspective, it seems to base on principles like hard work, saving, smart initiatives, investing in profitable business, in combining skills, efforts and experience with the talents of a successful poker player and also in having a certain dosis of luck or lucky opportunities. But there are only few winners - at the loss of millions of other "players". Many winners do not realise that their success, their wealth and their luck - even in a fair game - are also built on the misfortune of other people.
Most societal systems base on economies with infinite grows, unlimited resources and wasting, and , and there is the recurrent problem with property rights and ownership, privileges, ruling and dominance, survival and ambitions, success and performance, wants and needs, etc.
And relations, mentors, sponsors, mediators and other useful contacts, or more or less questionable means to improve the chances to succeed are rarely mentioned. It is the same system as a lottery: to allow a few to win the great price, there are millions of losers.
The famous 1 % are in control of commercial and industrial "world empires", corporations and cartels, and, with them, can influence political, social, religious, welfare, ecological, legal and other decisions or agreements on an international level.
