Is Our Idea of Success
Making Us Poor?

Introduction

Does money make a person mean?  When discussing “success,” many people immediately think of monetary success. While money is not inherently evil and can lead to good things, can money also have a negative impact? Do the very goals of our society that lead to personal prosperity and power also produce a culture of selfishness and greed?  This course is inspired by one of the weekly conversations hosted at Q Ideas (www.qideas.org).  They curated the video presentations which became the core of this very important Thinker Education course on the relationship between our definition of success and where that impulse to succeed leads.  To introduce this question, begin with this video by social psychologist Paul Piff, “Does money make you mean?”
