I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor. It’s better to be rich.

Gertrude Stein

What more can one add. Typically laconic short sentences by Gertrude Stein, undisguised written into the world. And she is so right. The equally banal and ideological statement that money alone does not make one happy may be true if the adverb “alone” is emphasized. But wealth in addition to a materially carefree life can bring about a great deal that is not only pleasant, but also can do good. It all depends on what is done with the surplus money (I could also call it “excess profit” in the very current capitalist sense).
