That age old question: Is wealth a finite pie?

When somebody has more wealth than you do, is it because you have a smaller piece?

1. I know people who are considered to be far more wealthy than me who owe others ...

a lot of money. Except for monthly bills I owe nothing to anybody.

Wealthy people often have a lot of responsibilities. Since I am not wealthy i don’t. That’s nice.

It is quite possible that I am a lot happier than most wealthy people.

If someone is wealthier than me I just say, “Good for them.” I could care less.

To answer your question I am satisfied with the amount of pie I have.
