At the end of most of the problems in this world you really can just point to greed (yes an over simplification at first glance, but not in my opinion). The root of all evil is not money, the root of all evil is greed, plain and simple. To quote someone, “How many yachts do you need to water ski behind, to be happy?”.
With that in mind here are some of the more interesting money tweets from this first week of October.
Bit of a crossover to my technology & security site, but evidently Scottrade’s security breach has been going on for quite a long time. Are you a customer? Best go check and see how this affects you. How much does security cost, evidently for greedy folks it is an unnecessary luxury.
Scottrade had no idea about data breach until the feds showed up http://t.co/52WXqFkNdF

Which of the political parties will get power in the next election? Doesn’t seem obvious does it? Greed here? Politician isn’t synonymous with greedy person?

I think the Dalai Lama sums it up nicely for this list of greed tweets
Many think that happiness is to be found outside ourselves in material things, but actually happiness is something that comes from within.
