Both sides have wealthy backers. You do realize that right? There is no business case. Wealthy people back Romney. Wealthy people back Obama. Nothing new or surprising there. The wealthy are as politically divided as the rest of America. Hardly news.
Wasn't really wanting to discuss the religious questions, just wanted the name of the teacher and, if possible, a link to the story. I'm fascinated by people's beliefs on wealth and how that impacts how wealthy they actually become. I have a theory that people who think it's bad to be rich subconsciously make decisions that lead them away from wealth. Obviously one's views on wealth are going to be influenced by their religious beliefs (or lack thereof). So I'm curious of the name of this teacher who appears to be from some eastern religion and a link to this teaching as well if you've got it. I don't intend to discuss it here, just want to do some research on my own. I know very little about eastern religions and I am curious how one's religious views affect one's views on wealth so this is a chance to do both.
