Raffi on Money: ‘Beyond a certain point, what good does it do?’

From Raffi’s autobiography:

One day when our coffers were full and I was given another large bonus, I had a talk with Mike.

“Let me see if I get it,” I began. “If this money is invested, it’ll get more money, right?”


“And then? If I invested that successfully, there’s more money, right?”

“That’s right. Raf, what are you driving at?”

“I’m not sure. It’s just . . . what’s the money for? Beyond a certain point, what good does it do?”

I wasn’t really going anywhere with this. I was just frustrated with the idea of capital accumulating toward no apparent end. It was a concept that baffled me.

[I hear you, guy.]
