Are You Richer Than Rockefeller?
There is something to be said for the quality of life we have as American citizens.
You can be a millionaire in many countries and still not enjoy many of the simple liberties we have here. People that have the means are moving to a place where they have a higher quality of living.
And there is the simple fact that living now in this time we have benefits the richest people in the world couldn't dream about. Rockefeller was the richest man in the world, some say richer by standards than anyone alive today.
From a David Henderson talk: "Think about what you have that Rockefeller didn’t. He couldn’t watch TV, play video games, surf the Internet, or send e-mail. During the summer, he didn’t have air conditioning. And here’s the big one. If he got sick, he couldn’t use many medicines, including penicillin."
