Dynastic wealth is monetary inheritance that is passed on to generations that didn't earn it.[1] Dynastic wealth is linked to the term Plutocracy. Much has been written about the rise and influence of dynastic wealth including the bestselling book Capital in the Twenty-First Century by the French economist Thomas Piketty.[2]

Bill Gates uses the term in his article "Why Inequality Matters".[3]
