ORIGINAL SOURCE
“There are two ways to become wealthy: to create wealth or to take wealth away from others. The former adds to society. The latter typically subtracts from it, for in the process of taking it away, wealth gets destroyed. A monopolist who overcharges for his product takes away money from those he is overcharging and at the same time destroys value. To get his monopoly price, he has to restrict production.
ACCEPTABLE PARAPHRASE
Creating wealth adds to society, whereas taking away the wealth from others detracts from it and destroys wealth in the process. For example, a monopolist overcharging for a product takes money away from the customer, but also destroys value because in order to get the monopoly price, production has to be restricted (Stiglitz 21).
