There was a small blip the other day on the business channel about millionaires. Seems as though the latest count put them at more than eight million. This was money over and above any equity in their homes.
Does this suggest we might be doing something wrong?
Now I grant you that the millionaires dont think so, but what about the rest of us?
I sense a growing unease in this country about this problem. The latest polls show that 70% of the people think this country is headed in the wrong direction. They cite a number of factors, but, I think, deep down, that they can feel the tilt which is creating a large pool of poverty. They are concerned that they are living on this slope which is slowly sliding them, and their children, into this enormous pool down below.
Some times you can be too greedy. If you dont believe me, read the history of the tsars and pre-revolutionary France. Lets hope the millionaires see the light before this country is torn apart.
