The Philosophy of Money

Under the influence of money, people tend to consider everything in terms of business and cost-effectiveness, while ignoring morality.

Being a businessman, I experienced people’s attitude towards the main driving force of the economy – money – quite a few times. Under the influence of money, people tend to consider everything in terms of business and cost-effectiveness, while ignoring morality.

For me, money is just an index-number threading my business life. I use it as a tool in order to make a better world and I work to avoid getting into an exposed position.

Certainly, we all perceive it, how the increasing power of money tears our world into two pieces embodied by the rich and the poor, winners and losers. It is sad to see, how today’s capitalist lifestyle is based mostly on material self-realization.

Unfortunately, this is even more harmful than an economic crisis since this causes a decadence in our heart, soul, and mind as well. This decline deprives us of our real dreams. Drifting with this decline we betray our community and trade with human relations. The way I see it, this will never turn out to be the kind of economy which saves mankind. May we STAY HUMAN regardless of whether we are winners or losers.
