7, Own nothing control everything
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

While it's true that controlling access to resources is less costly than actual ownership of the resources, that control ultimately derives from the power of owning other resources.

I would say the 21st century version of what you're saying is more like "Buy once, and then rent out forever." Rent out your money, rent out your real estate, rent out your land, rent out your software, and so on. Never actually sell *anything*. That's why manufacturing is in the toilet these days--there's more profit in creating scarcity and then renting.

It's actually a little breathtaking how specific those words are.

But that's another thread.
