I read an article recently about Martin Lawrence renting out his house for 200k a month. (this is relevant)
In the commentary section I saw a lot of people cry foul, and go on about how 'even if they had that kind of money they wouldn't do it'.
That attitude right there is the nature of the problem this country faces. You see, if you had enough money you would definitely rent a place like that. Why? Because at some point money means nothing to you. Money is meaningless except as a concept.
Try this experiment:
Imagine that you're willing to flip a coin as a bet with some money.
Would you bet .02 cents? Probably.
$1,000,000,000? <-- incidentally this is 1/4 what that bank recently flipped a coin on. They don't seem too upset about it.
and so on.
Where you sit on that is determined by how much money actually means to you. After a certain point the smaller amounts like '$1 to $10.' don't really make a difference one way or another in your life.
However in Thailand, where the average minimum wage is between 150-200 Baht (around six dollars), that is a big chunk of your daily wages. 
So how much money does it take that 200k a month is meaningless to you?
If you take in over 20 million dollars a year, then that amount means nothing. You won't even notice it on your budget. These are the kind of people who're influencing our countries policies. Some refer to them as the 1%, though honestly I think it's more like the 5%.
The kind of people we're talking about here, are mostly millionaires who honestly have little to no idea what it means to make actual choices. Choices like: get a car or remodel the kitchen. They can just do both without even a blink. To them, doing something, taking a vacation, painting the house... those are meaningless questions.
See the note about that bank? The reason they don't feel upset about it is because who cares? It doesn't matter to them. Even if they were fired and could never work again in their lives it won't impact their lifestyle one tiny bit.
