The Wealth of Sapiens

“The most important money we spend is not the Lambo (the car) money. It’s avoiding-misery money.”
– Daniel P. Egan

What is wealth?

For each of us it can mean many different things.

I came across this thoughtful blog in which the author suggests that the true definition of wealth is when you have, ” … the option to buy what you truly need”.

What is wealth? For many of us it is the ability to move our (or a) child from the left frame of this picture to the right.

The author concludes, and I believe most of us reading this would agree, that the benchmark for wealth is simply, “… my family and I are alive, safe, and fed. The rest is luxury.”
