This. This this this.

Also "take risks! look at these rich people who took risks and how it paid off!" -- often combined with sneering at broke people who took risks that didn't pay off. Apparently, if it works out, it's an intelligent well-reasoned necessary risk to take, and poor people are poor because they're unwilling to take such risks; but if it doesn't work out and leaves the person poor, then it's their fault that they're poor because they made the wrong choices.
