I don't think that wealthy people don't have a sense of what's going on in the economy. They of all people build their wealth by knowing their customer's needs and price accordingly. Although Kim has her businesses the brains of her empire is actually her mother so asking. She grew up in her own bubble which already disqualifies her from answering some of the questions Maria was asking.

"Some of the choices she made..." I mean blah, blah, blah! FORGET about it! It was a sex tape. Not only did she do the right thing in breaking away from her tape but she made an incredibly smart business decision by demanding being paid. I mean she is so harshly criticized for doing what people do with their partner EVERY DAY AND NIGHT! Even non-celeb couples make sex tapes. Only because she was a socialite with a somewhat famous partner.... it became a big day. Nonetheless she is one of the smartest business woman in the industry to this date. Her empire is amazingly huge and isn't going to minimize any time soon. How is she ridiculous? This guy is completely stupid. She's not "i guess... making moves" She's making something people like to call MONEY or profits. Wanna know why she's rich? Her family is smart (mainly her and kris) and they are building something. Don't agree? Well you're watching a video about her right now aren't you!?

Kim knows more about the economy than Michelle. Kim has her own business and she is very successful at it.

What do people expect Kim's answer to be? Kim has no idea what poverty is like. Her world is centered on cash! She shits $100 bills! She's giving her POV from HER world. She's also promoting her businesses by mentioning her stores and how financially accessible and luxury her products are adjusted to meet her customer's needs; yet another sly, inadvertent Kardashian marketing/promotion opportunity. Kim cannot relate to what it's like to have a negative bank account balance. She's never gone involuntarily hungry. The things normal people go through are unheard of and inexperienced to Kim. All this being said, is it hard not be a little jelly? (Side eye @ TYT).
