Many disagree for good reason: There are things money can’t buy.

It appears generally true that lack of money is the root of all evil. So logically do we say that with money it can solve all problems? Not quite so.

Seems that the world is not quite as simple as computers' logic of true and false. Shades of grey.

My personal opinion is that money is the one of the most important things in life. With it you can get reputation, power, and friends because you will have influence. Without it you are nothing.

If I had infinite money I could change everything for good, but then again people have to learn to grow and become better people not just have things given to them, so no money for them.

Are you referring to the Federal Reserves' constant printing of money? Isn’t the US currency no longer backed by gold supply?

Without money, I believe it’s fairly reasonable to say that people would have no incentive to work hard. Or at least, very few would.

Maybe? But seriously the more money you have the more evil you get.

People work both for financial rewards (to earn a living) as well as for the satisfaction of accomplishment.

It is fair to say that many people who have all the money in the world are the ones that get bored the easiest since they don’t really have any goals anymore.

But as long as they find a way to keep themselves busy, they certainly won’t be “evil”.

That’s like saying Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, and Carlos Sim are the most sinful people to appear on the planet.

Fact is: The more money one has, the better lives one can help to build.

Hence the other psychological half of the equation in the job: The satisfaction of accomplishment.

I know someone who says that money is all that matters, but it appears issues are never as simple as having just a single element.

I can’t deny that. Capitalism. I’m not blaming anything though.

I think money sucks. If you don’t have any, you’re forced to die of starvation. I think the human race would benefit without it. Somebody should go and shoot the guy who first thought of money.

My point is. The more money you have the more power you have and the more power you have the larger your head becomes. It is a natural thing to happen to us humans who’s in control. We always look ahead of the ones beyond us and then after we get that power we would always try to look respectful and look upon the ones below us.
