Time is the key for the rich ,every system in history gets so big and over extended it starts to collapse ,property /land then becomes cheap ,so thats when they buy it up cheap and then wait for the market to pick up sell it going up to a peak and then put your money off shore or start your own charity /trust thats how the rich get richer look at the likes of Prince Charles and all of his charities ,he and the royals have more than their share of charities !
