Do you want, as the grandfather of the heroine of one joke, “so that there are no poor”? Take away their money. In particular, cash – coins and pieces of paper. It is the despicable metal, which is in the hands of low-income citizens, and is their worst enemy. On the one hand, it is difficult to consider money as a problem if you can afford to heat a fireplace with them, for example.

Well, in any case, you can start your own business from an exhibition – one of the most effective means of public relations and advertising. And not paintings in the style of pop art or sculptural compositions from iron scrap, but … an exhibition of all-terrain vehicle models for the exploration of Mars. Landing apparatus “Kyuriosity” is at everyone’s hearing, which means we must take advantage of this. And today there were people who were able to make money on models of Martian all-terrain vehicles!
