The Money Game

Money is not nearly as real as people imagine it to be. It is more like the play money in a game of Monopoly to help keep track of who’s winning. The game is the same one animals play — pecking order. In the status game, destroying a competitor’s status is just as useful as enhancing your own. Players keep going long after they have accumulated more money than they could possibly spend. It is the status, not the advantages of wealth that drives them.
