That's Rich

I always find it useful, when discussing relative economic positions, to ask "relative to whom"? A society that emphasizes being richer than your neighbor will be a lot different than a society that emphasizes being richer than you were 10 years ago.

For one thing, the latter society at least offers the potential for everyone to be happy.
