Warren rejects the concept that it is possible for Americans to become
wealthy in isolation.

"You built a factory out there? Good for you," she says. "But I want to be
clear: you moved your goods to market on the roads the rest of us paid for; you
hired workers the rest of us paid to educate; you were safe in your factory
because of police forces and fire forces that the rest of us paid for. You
didn't have to worry that marauding bands would come and seize everything at
your factory, and hire someone to protect against this, because of the work the
rest of us did."
She continues: "Now look, you built a factory and it turned into something
terrific, or a great idea? God bless. Keep a big hunk of it. But part of the
underlying social contract is you take a hunk of that and pay forward for the
next kid who comes along."
