Wall Street and Wealth Addiction: Driving the Economy While Under the Affluence

19MONEYjp-superJumbo-v2Read former hedge-fund manager Sam Polk’s excellent article on Wealth Addiction:

“I see Wall Street’s mantra — “We’re smarter and work harder than everyone else, so we deserve all this money” — for what it is: the rationalization of addicts. From a distance I can see what I couldn’t see then — that Wall Street is a toxic culture that encourages the grandiosity of people who are desperately trying to feel powerful.”–Sam Polk, For the Love of Money

Then listen to Ched Myers’ “Who then can be saved?“: Jesus and the Rich Man as a Text of Terror and Liberation.
