Do you believe that rich people can afford to be generous persons. I know some rich people and they do not want to throw away or dole out money, because they say making money is difficult, speding it is easy. Everyone should work for it. How much you subscribe to this view?

For whom I know of those rich peoples I can rarely found a really generous one. I think most of the rich people only have "Suction inlet port" but no "Injection outlet port" with them so its very hard for them to take out any money to help the poor. Lots of those who might do some donations and always with lots of press reporters get around so I don't think they were consider generous as its very clear to the public they have some other intentions when they make donations. I know some of the rich peoples who happened to be someone I know quite well were doing a donations on and off as to clean out their past mistakes/debts.I wish I will meet someone who were kind enough for me and the public to consider him/her a real generous rich person:)

You used some technical words Inlet, Outlet so nicely, the topic really received an interesting response. I had come across some rich people dole out the money, only with the objective of getting more mileage on publicity, so that they can get the business papers approved by the politicians.

Not all people so generous. Some of them just make money with wrong way.

It is a wierd excuse, a lame one! Money is not easy, but not meant for accumulation. If a person who is incapable of working, or too old, and is badly in need of money, you need to share it. And remember, there is not straight way to get very rich in this world.

That is a good statement in support of less fortunate people. In reality that does not happen. Rich getting richer and the poor becoming more poorer unless someone lends helping hand.

They have a point and they are right, but not all rich people think this way. Some say making money is difficult, spending it is fun.

I think the people with less money are more generous with what they have. The rich are the stingy, greedy ones.

Half are and the other half arent. It is usually the people who grew up rich are the stingy ones. But then again of I worked really hard for a ton of money then Iwould penny pinch it too. I would always give to family
