I would quibble with that description just a little. The heart of the matter isn’t the houses and yachts that are bought by the Trumps’ and the Gates’ – it’s what they do with their money that drives things. What they invest in, the businesses that they start (or rescue from chapter 11), the people they employ and the jobs they create. We can buy stuff **because of what they do with their money**, not the other way around.

As for being greedy, we have far more opportunity than any other people in history, but I don’t think that makes us any greedier on average. Just because it’s modern times doesn’t exempt us from human nature! You are one of the important people whose job it to teach others which things are important and which not. Don’t shake your head and give up on us now... :)
