The Inside Track

“Here are the men who have the inside track. Here are all the expensive commodities, to which the rich seem appendages. Here is the money talking in its husky, silky voice of cash, power, celebrity” C. Wright Mills

The richest people in America are who we watch and admire. They have all the things that we are told we should aspire to have. When material possessions are what become most important in this country, which is what has happened, then cash does tend to speak in a seductive voice because it truly does equal power. 3 of the top 5 richest people in the world are from the United States. Without wealth we can’t have all the expensive commodities that make us popular.
