Should be stated that Ben Shapiro here usually says if you do these thinks you will stay out of permanent poverty rather than 'get rich' like he's saying here.

  • This actually comes from studying poverty and what are the key reasons for being poor and staying poor. Statistically if you do these 3 things you'll not remain in the poverty band for more than a year, you'll move out and live a comfortable life.

  • You will be rich is very different from you will not go poor.
    And one more thing is lacking - don't spend more than you're earning.
    Credit cards are abundant in the US.
    When I was there, it's so easy to use credit card and to spend, that I had to use cash to "limit" my spending. LOL.

  • "Graduate High school" Duh, obviously.
    "Get married before you have babies", you need a solid relationship, marriage certificate not required.
    "Get a job" In America, today, that won't make you rich. A good job might make you well off, but to be rich you have to exploit other people's work.

  • These aren't the rules to be rich. These are the rules to never be financially poor and yes I do agree with these rules for never being financially poor. Becoming rich is a different subset of rules, but these could help for sure as well. Because you're cutting the fat.

  • They are more like how to avoid poverty.

    Get a job seems pretty obvious.

    TBH I've read there ARE statistically three things that radically avoid poor outcomes:
    - don't have a baby as a teen
    - don't drop out of school
    - don't go to jail.
