Why do people always want more money no matter how much they already have?




Why is it that people always want more money, no matter how much money they have already?
There is one word that describes that, and it's called "greed". People tend to get greedy
when they already have enough money, because money to some people means power. To some
people money means everything, they use money to shop, some people are even smart enough
to invest it in a bank to increase the amount.



People depend on money to pay their rent or to pay their bills. Yes, these are things that
must be taken care of right away, so it is understandable why people always need more and
more money.



Some people just want more money to live like kings and possess luxurious items such as,
cars with expensive rims and a booming sound system, expensive and excessive jewelry and
expensive name brand clothing.

  • Health Care Economics
    Health Care Economics People place various levels of price on their lives and the lives of their loved ones. People take drastic measures in an attempt to increase and improve one\'s life. Unfortunately, money and economics have a great influence on the value of life.

  • Stowaways
    Stowaways Stowaways have been a problem to shipowners for about as long as there have been ships in the sea. In the early days of sailing ships and looser maritime legislation, this was a relatively minor problem. This probably had to due with the fact that the ships were smaller in comparison to today\'s standards, and were comparatively heavily crewed. Thus the chances for a stowaway to get on board and go undiscovered for any length of time were fairly small. Also in that age, the concept of

  • The Theory of Property
    The Theory of Property While Webster\'s New Collegiate Dictionary defines property as "something regarded as being possessed by, or at the disposal of, a person or group of persons species or class," (p. 1078) this definition hardly holds the connotations so emphatically discussed by the anthropologist Morgan. To Morgan, "property has been so immense...so diversified its uses so expanding...that it has become...an unmanageable power." (p.561) Why has it become such an unmanageable power? Morgan

    Decline of the American Empire In any era there are different protagonists, playing the same game on a similar board. Like a game of monopoly, there are nations competing to become the foremost leaders of their time. They amass great wealth, powerful armies, and political sway.

At times, it seems as though one of these empires wins

    Inflation Over the last century many countries throughout the world have experienced inflation as their major economic problem. Expensive wars have traditionally been recognized as the sources of inflation. Governments, in effort to squeeze more production out of an economy, have often resorted to printing or releasing more money to finance the purchase of arms and soldiers1. In an economy already producing at full capacity, the issuing of additional money serves to bid up the prices of the outp
