when will people stop being focused on making billions in profits etc and start looking into making the world a better, more efficient and effective place to be humans being!
load of bollocks and if people really feel they need to pay someone else to feel secure..........
look at the history books and the corruptness of religion and politics etc
shame the world has become what it has
I was working in Knightsbridge a couple of months ago and the amount of spare cash sloshing around in rich circles is astonishing. Don't anyone take this the wrong way, but I'm used to mixing in fairly wealthy circles - I went to private school (a friend of mine's family owned Tiger Balm for example amongst other rich families) but the excessive wealth now is incredible. By excessive I mean spare cash, and literally millions if not billions of pounds worth of it. The person we were subcontracting to specialised in high end refits and told us of how a very rich Arab had bought the entire top floor of Number 1 Hyde Park, at a cost of well of £100 million, as his London pad, not his house or home, his pad when he is staying in Town! The NCP car park next door to site was full of brand new Rollers, Ferraris, Astons, Mclarens....etc all under covers - they were, apparently, all owned by people who only occasionally visited London but had invested £100-500k in a motor as their London runaround! There's always going to be richer people but when you've got £100 million to put down on something you're only going to use occasionally, a certain absurdity comes into it, and Longun's comment exposes the selfishness in the world we live in.
Here's the point in my ramble - where does the interest on these people's vast and extravagant wealth come from? I can appreciate the few quid I either earn in savings or lose by not paying my credit card is small fry compared to stocks and shares etc, but when you're talking billions, where does that cash come from? Or is that why we're apparently doomed?
