Good question. And, about Bill Gates, I'm not sure if you people know but he gives a LOT of his money to charity. Yes, it's a tax write off, but still..the guy seems to understand there's more to life than just money.
Secondly, I like Warren Buffet. Did you know that he's leaving his heirs with nothing except a full college education? How cool is that. He's proving the point that knowledge and intellectual capacity are far greater than money ever will be. He's also given a lot of money away, but then, he also has a lot invested in stocks.
Overall, I think people shouldn't complain about these two people. They are rare examples of the rich people in the world--but they are good examples of how they don't just sit around and flaunt their money. I don't think I'd ever wish to be rich. There are too many haters out there and it'd be too easy to lose track of what's important in life.
