Men spin myths as spiders spin webs…
Eve and Adam munched the apple, Zeus kinged Earth, Washington axed the cherry tree.
To these fantastic fictions we must add another:
Money and wealth are synonyms. Money is wealth and wealth is money.
This myth — this deathless myth — commands our attention today.
Murdered and buried 1,000 times, 1,001 times it has stormed from its tomb. The very gods envy its immortality.
