Response to reformist2 (Reply #6)

12. There was this heiress who inherited $1 million in the 1920s

 

By the time she died she had turned it into $100 million. But her only child, a boy, lost his leg because she refused to hire a doctor. They lived uncomfortably until she died, (and he did not hire a doctor for his mom either). She was all about saving for the future and making more money. After her death, the son spent every last sent.

It is an illness that we seem to worship.
