It should be scandalous to Christians that poor people cannot survive in our society without working to such a degree that they do not have time to spend with God or their families. We should support whatever macroeconomic changes would support a world where working class people can have a basic level of economic stability and still have time for meaningful pursuits.
Dave Ramsey recently posted on his blog a list of 20 things that rich people do that poor people don’t do (the idea being that poor people are to blame for their poverty). Among the list were that rich people write down their goals, read books, make their kids volunteer, teach good daily success habits to their children, etc. Well, I was reading through my dad’s Economist magazine last night and I found a 21st item to put on Dave’s list. Apparently it’s a growing trend for really rich people to buy expensive artwork, and, instead of hanging it up in their homes, store it in giant, tax-free warehouses in places like Luxembourg to use as investment currency instead of stocks or bonds.
