You may think of recycling as doing your part when it comes to helping the planet and being eco-friendly. Some of us may find it exhausting or unnecessary. We also may see it as a way of reducing our waste. However, the fact is that recycling is also a way to economize and save more money than you would expect.
Let’s face it. Hollywood rules the entertainment world, especially beyond its own borders. But there’s another blockbuster TV and film industry challenging the leader: Bollywood. Based in Mumbai, India, the second largest movie market in the world cranks out 5 times as many films a year, yet earns just 1/10 the revenue. And that’s with more than 100 times the number of theaters and upwards of 1,000 times the number of butts in seats.
“Greed is Good!”–from the movie Wall Street (1987)
More than 2,000 years ago the wise and famous scholar Hillel wrote “If I am not for myself who will be for me. If I am only for myself, what am I?”
Recently there have been people and corporations in the news who have been only for themselves with no regard for the damage their greed has done to others. This list includes schemers like Bernie Madoff, many bankers, unscrupulous insurance companies, dictators, and politicians whose only goal is to accumulate vast amounts of money. For these groups of people it is no longer about being more secure or supporting their families. It’s about unlimited accumulation.
