I suppose it all bogs down in the definition of what constitutes work. Investments don't make themselves and to stay a wealthy capitalist one would have to do some research as to the best products to invest in.
Though compared to doing manual labour, you could also argue that Moore hardly 'works'
I don't think there's any reputable definition of capitalism that stipulates capitalists must not work, so there's no need to get bogged down in defining what work is, and then defining what 'best products' means, then defining what 'research' means means, trying to define when 'work' crosses the line and becomes research, then eventually we could get around to defining what 'define' means.
