Perhaps you’ve already covered all the financial bases to your satisfaction. Quo vadis? I have several thoughts on the meaning of wealth. You may find some of them of value as prices of everything fluctuate radically in the years ahead.
First, recognize that wealth is a high moral good. Don’t feel guilty about having it or about wanting more.
If you’ve already accumulated and deployed enough capital to allow you to jump off the golden treadmill, congratulations: Chances are high that you are an exceptional human being. I say that because the moral value of being wealthy is underrated. I don’t mean that in a Calvinistic way, in that Calvin believed Yahweh rewarded the righteous by making them rich.
