Money is the root of all evil, they say. Money has existed for decades and I'm wondering if it's caused more damage to the human race than various benefits / favours it's offered? On one hand, money has pushed the human race into an actual (rat) race for gathering as much money as we can throughout our life. On the other hand, money has been a motivator for several innovations, inventions and discoveries. Maybe it's the want of more profits that many companies have innovated - be it in road constructions or communications or bridge building or transport - something we can definitely count as 'advancement' for the human race.

A 30,000 ft view would give us a different picture altogether. There are several people who're still fighting for food and shelter because they don't have access to money. What's your opinion? Posted in: #Coffee Room

Money is just a medium that standardizes the process of exchange. Its not money but the intention of people that has created a actual rat race. To be a part of the rat race or not is one's own choice. When people are more driven by greed rather than their actual need, that is when it turns evil.

Posting a talk I happened to listen to today here just because it is relevant to the theme .



Autonomy. Mastery. Purpose. - The buzz words that are a solution to the Motivation Puzzle - What motivates you?
Money isn't an incentive - and only now the masses are realizing. It was a knowledge and results of a research known only to a few creative geniuses and top bosses in the world. We can't say that money does harm. But it isn't a motivator to take you and others to the NEXT level.
