Below is a video that was shared on FB by one of the other teachers at school. It reminds me of the renown economist John Kenneth Galbraith's book The Affluent Society, which I read in college and still remember quite well.
Growing wealthy is not the point of economics or even personal and individual finance. The point is to enrich your own life and those of others. As the short video quotes Gandhi, "Be the change you wish to see in the world."
