Sam Polk isn't the only one addicted to wealth. After all, he quit while the others remained; and most of the rest of us wish we had been him! Read More
At the moment, I don’t think an addiction to Wealth is a problem in the USA.
Tax havens are a problem, the USA is losing about $100 billions to offshore transfer a year - that is money transfer from tax payers to already rich people and corporations. And nothing is being done about it.
And Sam Polk and his ilk, are the gambling and high addicts-sociopaths that wrecked Wall Street by applying their big math brains-no soul to create what Dylan Ratigan, in his Howard Beale moment, described as “ A mathematical fact. Tens of trillions of dollars are being extracted from the United States of America. Democrats aren’t doing it, republicans aren’t doing it, an entire integrated system, banking, trade and taxation, created by both parties over a period of two decades is at work on our entire country right now.”
The offshore system, is what Nicholas Shaxson calls “ the greatest fault line in our globalized world”.

"dont trust anyone over 30" / next teen/twen generation.
Doesnt mean they are extreme materialistic.
As an image:
"clever is more important, than being the biggest kid in the neighborhood"
