how corrupt is money?
Money is an inanimate object. It cannot be corrupt. That's like asking "On a scale of 1-10, how corrupt is a toaster?"
Depends on which side of the fence you're on. I'd say from 1-10.
Money is a powerful force that can corrupt some very easily. Yet others, it takes a lot more.
In some circles, they would say that money corrupts all. Finding the threshold is the individual's level key.
money tears relationships apart, esp if you lend to family and friends
money causes people to judge others. if you have alot, people will value your opinion more than if you have little. i hate it
money is what enables the rich to get richer and the poor to stay poorer as those with money only look out for their interests
i hate money
i hate money
i hate money
also, on a lighter note
money=sqrt(evil) "root of all evil"
Money is not evil; it's impossible for it to be. The love of money is evil. Money is a necessity in the world we live in, just like food and water.
Then I love evil.
oh me too lol
I always thought the rich got richer from hardwork and being smart? The poor usually do not have the hard work ethic or if they do the smarts to get out of poverty.
While this is true there are always exceptions (Paris Hilton) but for the most case if your poor and are smart and want it bad enough you'll come out on top.
If girls are evil, then that must mean guys are good. I love good.
Money isn't corrupt, it's what you do with it that counts.
those that start off in a poor life takes exponentially more effort to succeed than those that are born well off
ok ill have to edit girl to relationships as it applies right haha
I wish I grew up with less money. My parents make enough money to not be in debt, but not enough to help my with school, so instead I don't get any money off school and work my ass off to not take out student loans. Compared to some of my friends who's parents don't make nearly as much money and the Tax Payers pay for their school.
Bottom line is smart hard working people doesn't matter where you come from will come out out on top if you avoid the vices and stay out of trouble.
On a scale of 1-10
Do you think this thread title could have been more vague?
That is the exact same situation that I am in with my parents and school. I guess we are stuck with that "in between" financial situation where we don't get help from either side. ugh
thats a lil naive
the schools the poor go to are not near the same level in opportunities and quality education that those who live in better areas receive. that it makes it much harder
likewise, thos in poor families do not have the convience on focusing soley on school, athletics, what have you as their family situation may require them to help out the family fincailly
bottom line: the environment you live in has a pretty significant impact on opportunities to become successful
there are just as many smart (iq wise at least),hardworking people in poor families as in more well to do. however, those that are well to do certianly have a much much higher success rate in life in financial terms
every school has merit based scholarships you know so fam finances dont even play into it
That's true of any corrupting influence. Center court Lakers tickets? Hot prostitutes? A new wing for your Alaskan villa? Enough cash to stuff a freezer with? Most people have one or more of these kinds of weaknesses, all it takes is someone with the motive and means to find and exploit them...
Yeah, it's almost as if these two just didn't "want it" bad enough. I mean, the opportunity was there and all, they must just have been too lazy to make something of what was available to them, and are now simply complaining about how it's all someone else's fault, rather than taking personal responsibility for their decisions...
That is true, and I probably could have gotten a few, but I was too lazy to apply. I guess I reap what I sew.
I do love that somewhere along the line, someone, somewhere, managed to wiggle that into society, we technically don't need money, but it's just become a part of society.
I'd says it's relative importance for happiness and contentment are about a 3. Our perception is much higher though.
We technically very well do. The kind of specialization required for any modern society demands an abstract language of valuation. I have no idea if you are considering a specific alternative or just hand-waving, so I won't get into a long preemptive diatribe.
We don't necessarily need the beast that global finance has become in exactly the form it has taken, or even to follow the same basic rules, but if we threw out money today, we'd have to turn around and invent it again tomorrow.
1 if I understand the question right?
