This is not about the world of banking. It is not about what goes wrong in the world due to the misuse of money. This is about the responsibility we might or might not feel when we have a lot of money.

In my opinion money could be compared with the possession of tools. When you have a sufficient number of tools to construct a new house and you have the recourses and knowhow to work with these tools you can construct a new house.

Money all by itself has no value whatsoever. Even if we would have gold coins or money backed up by gold it would be of zero value if that was all we got.

If you would live on a deserted island with no hope of returning to the civilized world having a lot of money would mean nothing to you.

When you have a lot of money on your bank account where you have no use for, it is as having a mountain of tools stacked in your garage that you might not even know how to use but you don’t allow others to use it.

I don’t mean to say that having money in reserve is a bad thing. I would just like you to look at money as a tool you can use to improve not only your own life but that of others as well.

Too many people involved in the banking sector see money more as a commodity than as a tool for exchange. Money should not be seen as a product you can sell or buy. This is to complicate the subject beyond belief.

This is just my opinion on the subject of money. You might think entirely different about this.

I do not think there is anything wrong with earning a lot of money as long as we go about it in an honest way. The real question is: “What are we going to do with it?”

I am curious as to your opinion on this matter. Feel free to comment on it. Your feedback is more than welcome.
