We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

Money should serve as a means to an end, and not the end itself. Unfortunately, we have come as a culture to fetishize money and consumption, instead of value creation and production. The financial world also seems to have fallen into this trap, and a large portion of the supposed value of today’s companies is made up of Fugazi money which has been printed or loaned into thin air.
