Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - I'd just like a chance to prove that money can't make me happy. Me, all the time
Yeah, there is! It takes money out of the economy. Economics 101 - the health of any economy depends on the free and continual circulation of money from consumer to producer to employee. Any long term diminishment of the money supply, from excessive imports to excessive saving, is damaging to the economy. Any damage to the economy will, by definition, affect the poorest first and most enduringly. If by 'rich' we mean those that hoard wealth, and we surely do since nobody gets on the rich list by having outgoings commensurate with their income, then there is absolutely no doubt that they are damaging the economy to which they are in a parasitical relationship. One does not need to be a socialist or a liberal to simply do the math!
