“Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me.”

As I tried to understand how the global economy could be shut down by a handful of greedy people, I kept recalling a famous line by F. Scott Fitzgerald that I read many years ago but which has always stuck with me. I think if offers us much more insight than anything we are being fed by the media.

“Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me. They possess and enjoy early, and it does something to them, makes them soft where we are hard, and cynical where we are trustful, in a way that, unless you were born rich, it is very difficult to understand. They think, deep in their hearts, that they are better than we are because we had to discover the compensations and refuges of life for ourselves.”

The Rich Boy,”
