English term or phrase: asset advantage
How about what might be called "asset advantage"?

Asset advantage comes from owing something that is rare, or even unique. Obviously, this includes extractive industries , such as mining, oil and gas development, and wood pulp. But less obviously, it includes industries like retailing and lodging, Sometimes, even the players within these industries musunderstand their asset advantage.

Notes to answerer
Asker: pronađoh još malo primjera evo o čemu se radi ali nemam ideju kako to na hrvatski prevesti The ramifications of these common law principles are evident in racial and gender income disparity. For example, the vast majority of women and people of color in many western developed nations do not have resources, i.e., assets, which are controlled primarily by white men. Thus, those with the major amount of assets can invest and continue to generate income for themselves and their families, income that is not based on their own wage work. The continuation of privileges, benefits and inheritance, in turn, creates ongoing “entitlement,” in both a legal and sociological sense. They and their children have choices that those without resources simply do not have. Ignoring this asset imbalance and the privilege that comes from “asset advantage,” mainstream legal discourse focuses on “equal opportunity” within the formal sector wage work force for those previously discriminated against because of disability, sexual orientation, gender or race (see generally Oliver, M. and Shapiro, T. 1995). Those without assets are treated as if they were on an equal footing within the formal sector wage-work setting.
