I am a keen observer and have seen and observed that many rich people are stingy and miser in many of their dealings.... Instead they want to still earn even though they have sufficient money. Why is it so...??? Did your experience come across such cases..?? [b]Please share your comments.... [/b]

Those rich people actually have fear of losing what they have worked hard on. I myself don't want to spend my hard earned money even if i have a lot already. Instead i would have to think where to invest that money so that i can still be useful and not waste what i have earned. My brother once told me that poor people can't sleep at night thinking where they're gonna get the money to buy food the next day, but rich people cannot sleep at night thinking where they should invest their money.

What you say is correct that they do not want to waste what they have earned.I do agree. But some are so miser that they even want for free _ I came across several cases of this type and not only that they even do not hesitate even to bargain at the poor peoples shop too. I really get disturbed seeing this. Your brother also has told correct where only poor people suffer for money.... Any how that God only has to decide.....

I think that the best things to have in life are good health, good luck and happiness. I don't think that having lots and lots of money makes a person feel happy. A rich person might be worried about losing his or her wealth. One thousand dollars might seem like pocket change to that sort of person. He or she is likely to be concerned by interest rates at the bank. A rich person might have a very expensive and flashy sort of car. However he or she would be scared someone might damage or steal this lovely looking car. If he or she visits a friend he or she will keep glancing out of the window wondering is my car okay. A lot of rich people are mean and stingy at someone's birthday and Christmas. Though on a happy note I have seen a program called "The Secret Millionaire". This rich person goes undercover and goes to stay in a poor area. He or she finds local charities to help. Sometimes he or she gives away loads of money, thousands, I am pleased to say. One of these millionaires began her own charity and spends more on that than her own business.

Nice to read your motivating examples which has really inspired me.We find very less persons with that great nature..nd that too charity. thanks for your response... I found that many-earn money because of the greedy nature towards that and finally have see that others enjoy that money.

GREED, so the rich becomes richer and the poor becomes POORER. One example is corruption. Those who are already in power steals money from the people. This has been one of the social crises that has been deeply rooted in the society. Money should not be treated as LORD where we become slaves of greed. But I wouldn't generalize, there are rich people who helps the poor... :)

I really agree with you with the last sentence..I have just a couple of rich people who are God fearing and always with the intention to do the needful to the poor section of the society and also take part in extending charities for poor children. We have to really appreciate them. And as you say people in politics are really stealing money....

I also have the same observation. Yes. They have too much but it seems they want more. This really is something that is so confusing. Others have so little yet feels so complete. They have a happy life without owning a lot. I just do not see the value of money as the answer to everything. Yes it gives you your desires but at times it can't offer the things that you really want.
