From some extended observations of my work colleagues I've come to the conclusion that money is the last great taboo subject! People are more than happy to discuss: 1) sex 2) sport 3) religion 4) politics 5) weather 6) property (but only in Sydney) 7) drinking 8) sport 9) sex 10) sport but talking about money and investment is somehow vulgar. Who makes it, how to make it and how to keep it and people clam up or become very embarrassed. Why is it so? I think the psychology of money and how we relate to it is fascinating. Perhaps it's because our sense of self-worth (no matter how much we'd like to think otherwise) is intrinsically linked to how much money we have or earn. (Or at least how much RELATIVE to others )...is it because it's how we keep score? What are your thoughts?
