    Money is a good servant but a poor master.  It's the maximization of profit that is destroying the world (we live in a finite world and so continual growth is both unrealistic and unsustainable).  If we could learn moderation instead we would be much better off.

    World is still here and money is still going from hand to hand.

    Not really.  But what has screwed the economy up is how cash is not very often backed up by something physical, like gold, and then other countries base THEIR currency on THAT money.  It's sort of like using a credit card to pay a mortgage and then getting a second mortgage to pay the credit card.

    I'd tried to answer this question before as "Armchair Goddess #1," but was unable to get my answer to post for some reason.  What causes the most problems for our finite world is not money, but is rather how deeply insecure men tend to overcompensate for their repressed self-loathing by mistaking money for "power" that they subconsciously crave.  Low self-esteem and repressed self-loathing has the potential to produce in kind, and so becomes the "root of all evil" (with "evil" being a tendency to "live" backwards, set upon a negative).

    IT is greed and corruption that is destroying the world and in the end it was all for nothing.

    Money hasn't, but ignorance and stupidity pretty much have.

    No greed is the problem.

    It is the love of money to destroy this world. In fact, money is only an element of destruction. The seven deadly sins are the real problems.

    No. But the LOVE of money has. The Bible tells us that the LOVE of money is the root of all evil.
