Mammon

From how I see it, the pursuit of more money than you can spend in your entire lifetime is not about living comfortably. It's about power. It's about respect. If what drives you is the search for power and respect, then you're a hungry sonuvabitch indeed. And that's exactly why I don't think an honest and decent businessman will ever get to be as rich as the Lucio Tans and the Henry Sys of this world. Honest and decent people aren't predators. They try not to take advantage of their employees. They try to be fair, paying a man what his work is worth, giving him benefits out of genuine human compassion and the desire to make the world a little better. Tycoons, on the other hand, are bloodthirsty Hun warlords in Armani suits.
