4th arm: Once greed for money has made you wealthy — which can in fact happen (in 2017 0.8 % of the world's population owned 44.8 % of global wealth, while 63.9 % of the population owned only 1.9 % of this wealth — statistics for 2019, source Credit Suisse) — the temptation to indulge in a shopping spree increases dramatically (which at least is beneficial to the economy). The greed for things becomes the norm. Inspired by fashion shows, glossy fashion magazines, internet forums, influencers and luxury fashion houses, people buy until they drop. If they can’t buy castles, large yachts or Ferraris, they can keep themselves happy with the latest gadgets, cool gifts, or luxury handbags, which can easily cost 15,000 euros or more. Designer shoes and extravagant creations bought from famous fashion houses are stuffed into showy shopping bags — so that everyone can see where they have been shopping. An at the end of the successful shopping spree there’s time for a selfie before jumping into a comfortable Rolls Royce or Mercedes to whisk them home, the weight of the numerous shopping bags forgotten. Once at home, they immediately try everything on. Some will now start noticing that these clothes make them look a bit old – which brings us to the next arm.
