cannot take your money with you, so why not put it to good
As the world population explodes, there are proportionally
on the planet, the product of exploiting manufacturing and
selling of products and services. Meaning of course, that
there will be proportionally more poor people, who are being
exploited. There is though nothing wrong with making money,
provided that it is put to good use. Since, money is just a
tool to accomplish things. Not a pile of paper notes to be
counted for pleasure, or vaults of gold or
the latter would be preferable, since at least is looks
better than a stack of pulp, or a digital display, when
is a sobering thought, that in order to make money, energy
has to be used, mostly from the burning of fossil
fuels. Hence, making money generates a large carbon
where a responsible attitude to increasing greenhouse
would and perhaps, should be, to offset the CO2, as far as is
is why many wealthy people set up charitable foundations.
