Investments are not limited to physical things.

People making 100+K per year pretax are making money off of investments in education etc.

PS: For more physical examples, a stripper can deduct cosmetic surgery from their taxes. http://backalleytaxes.com/is-cosmetic-surgery-tax-deductible...


That's obviously not the same thing and I'm pretty sure you understand that.

Some people in the US are investing 400+k in education. Spending that on buying and renting property can also create an income stream, but they both take work.

It is similar, education is an investment. One of the best investment you can make, in terms of return.
