Well, actually, we didn‘t think up the question. The author of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” Robert Kiyosaki. He conducted a poll asking Americans, which would you rather have more of, more sex or more money? Well, the results might surprise you: Two-thirds of the folks said they‘d rather accumulate than fornicate. Now, you can interpret these results any number of ways? Have we grown so greedy that we are less needy for sex? Has the economy gotten so bad that extra treasure means more than pleasure?
Or maybe there are just more of us who simply are tired. We baby boomers are getting up there; 20, 30 years ago, that poll might have gone a different way. Now maybe demographic realities are catching up with us. As America gets older, it seems we lust more for the color of green than for the other one. Well, maybe, if the economy gets booming again and those retiring funds start to look a little fancier, we‘ll be able to relax and reorder the priorities.
