But only ‘rich’ people by definition have the ‘extra’ money to buy things and invest to create economic growth.

It is not the style of clothes one wears, neither the kind of automobile one drives, nor the amount of money one has in the bank, that counts. These mean nothing. It is simply service that measures success.

The networks just wouldn’t spend the money today.

There are some things that you can fulfil with money, but at the end of the day these are not the things that make you happy. It is the small things that make life good.
