What is Wealth?

What is Wealth?

People often get sucked into a way of thinking about things that makes them think that a reasonable standard for measuring whether someone is wealthy or not is appropriately measured relative to Mark Zuckerberg or the Google guys or whatever.

But there’s another angle to this, and that is to ask what “wealth” means. People who equate wealth in any serious way with “amount of money that you have” are missing a lot of richness in how humans value things.

What I think people most value (or ought to most value) is rich and interesting life experiences. On that level, there is no doubt that I’m growing rich every month, and much richer than one might imagine from my relatively meagre (compared to billionaires of Sarafa/Sadar bazaar!) 

it is all a matter of perspective. One can learn to stay happy.

P.S – I travel a lot. That’s how i learned..
