R’ Simcha Wasserman would explicate that in economics there is the sphere of the individual’s domain and the community’s domain. When it comes to the total national wealth, it makes no difference to the nation’s wealth, in a particular sense, whether that wealth is concentrated in a few hands or distributed equally among everyone. The nation is still wealthy and a wealthier nation can accomplish more. Even a poor man that lives in a wealthy nation has certain advantages.
The same is true in the Jewish community as when someone is learning he is adding to the public good. The Torah scholar adds to the accumulation of Torah and causes the entire nation to become rich. When the Chofetz Chaim lived, the entire Jewish people were rich. Conversely, when he died, the entire nation became poorer.
 R’ Simcha Wasserman described the scene at the third meal of Shabbos at the Chofetz Chaim’s small house in Radin which he attended regularly. The entire yeshiva would come to hear him. Up to 40 people would squeeze into his house while the remainder stood outside listening through the window.
