The income gap between the top 1% and the bottom 99% is well known: the top earn more than that other portions combined. The average employee “needs to work more than a month to earn what the CEO earns in one hour,” according to The New York Times in 2014. Where does the thirst to have more and more come from? Is greed in our DNA, or are we trying to fill other holes in our lives? Studies show that people are not automatically happier if they earn more. Work and business are not outside our practice of faith but an integral part of it. It’s not about money, but creating value: jobs, service, dignity and fulfilment.
