One Big Difference

"One difference between the rich and the poor is this: The rich want more money so that they can get more stuff; the poor want more money so that they don’t lose everything they have. The former can correctly be called greed, but that doesn’t seem like an accurate word for the poor person’s desperation for some respite from the reasonable fear that, at any moment, powerful creditors may take away everything they need to live."

Hat tip, of course, Slacktivist
