It seems to me that there is absolutely no limit to greed. The more money that people have, the more they want. I certainly understand people wanting/needing the basic necessities of life. We all want/need basic housing, enough money to buy food for our selves/families, basic clothing for work/leisure, and of course access to medical care. Additionally we all need some sort of basic transportation and furniture for our living space. However, we do not NEED huge 4,000 -8,000 square foot houses. Nor do we NEED ever more exotic cars, certainly not $95,000 a Mercedes-Benz or a $200,000 Ferrari. Lets look at clothing as an example of greed. Some men are "clothes horses" , BUT one heck of a lot of women have more outfits then she can possibly wear in a in a month of Sundays. Seriously, who needs dozens and dozens of shoes ? I recall that the wife of Philippine Pres. Marcos had 3,000 pairs of shoes. Yeah, yeah, I know that she was not the typical woman , BUT how many western culture women have 2-3 dozen pairs of shoes ? LOTS of them ! By no means are men exempt from collecting ever more "toys" like electronic gadgets and a dozen cars. I could go on and on about the excess of what people own. However, when tens of thousands of our citizens have tens of thousands of dollars in jewelry: Rolex watches worth $10,000 and or diamond rings worth more than most people can earn in a year, I get upset when I see masses of people who are homeless and hungry and living without any medical care what-so-ever. Now, I do not object to basic capitalism, BUT I do object when people acquire such wealth as to not pay their fair share of taxes.
