Rich: The Word Field and Minefield of Meaning and the background, cultural and intercultural. And a bit of history as well.
How to become rich, is one of the questions, young people all over the world ask their educators.
My way of answering usually was: What are you interested in and why do you ask this question?
When clarified after a few minutes, I found a way to continue my lessons, but gave my students the idea that I would come back to what they wanted to know in my own way.
Rich in knowledge …
Rich in experience …
Happy wife and happy life …
Many children …

Wise old men and their knowledge and heritage … like Lessing: Nathan The Wise & The Ring Parable …
The centrepiece of the drama is the “Ring Parable”, narrated by Nathan when asked by Saladin which religion is true: an heirloom ring with the magical ability to render its owner pleasing in the eyes of God and mankind had been passed down from father to son. For generations, each father had bequeathed the ring to the son he loved most. When it came to a father with three sons whom he loved equally, he promised it (in “pious weakness”) to each of them. Looking for a way to keep his promise, he had two replicas made, which were indistinguishable from the original, and gave on his deathbed a ring to each of them.
The brothers quarrelled – of course – over who owned the real ring. A wise judge admonished them that it was impossible to tell at that time – that it even could not be discounted that all three rings were replicas, the original one having been lost at some point in the past.
To cut it short, to find out whether one of them had the real ring it was up to them to live in such a way that their ring’s powers could be proven true, to live a life that is pleasant in the eyes of God and mankind rather than expecting the ring’s miraculous powers to do so. Nathan compares this to religion, saying that each of us lives by the religion we have learned from those we respect.
And today, I wish to add: You can live with our without religion and with or without God, however it is a wise decision to live your life as if he was there, indeed. (You never know for sure, until you stand in front of him …)
Rich women and wisdom …
If you are not born into a very rich family in a First World country like the USA or Denmark or Sweden, the easiest way would be to marry a very rich wise woman!
But do not ask me HOW!
Pls make a decision as well if you wish to be rich or very rich or filthy rich …
Money amounts are relative, and your greed can eat it all up …

Some of them have stated at the age of 40 or older: Had I known when 18 years old what I know now, I would have made completely different decisions about my life like
What subjects to study or where to work and which company to choose and what people to work with.
These people forget that young people live in a different world than adults. They find different things relevant. And looking back does not help very much! No regrets has become one of my favourite slogans in life!
And young people since Plato and Sokrates have gone their own way anyway, no matter what parents or teachers or other adults have told them to do.
They even have the right to not understand … And find out what is good for them.
Just imagine what society thought and told young women in 1749 – the year Goethe was born in Frankfurt in Germany – how to behave and what to do in life … even reading was thought to be bad, not good for young women.
If people tell you we are all doomed anyway, for many reasons, do not trust them! What are their arguments and why do they state this? What are their intentions?

„It‘s only when the tide goes out, we find out who‘s swimming naked.“
Wo beginnt Armut?
Die Mittelschicht vor dem Abstieg zu bewahren, ist derzeit eines der wichtigsten Ziele der Regierung. Doch das ist gefährlich, denn eine Politik, die sich zu sehr auf einen Teil der Gesellschaft konzentriert, verfestigt die soziale Ungleichheit. Das Bürgergeld allein wird das nicht ändern.: https://www.sueddeutsche.de/projekte/artikel/gesellschaft/mittelschicht-armut-abstieg-buergergeld-e821621/
Was ist Stallgeruch?
Im übertragenen Sinne wird mit „Stallgeruch“ das soziale Milieu eines Individuums bezeichnet, also seine Herkunft oder langfristige Zugehörigkeit zu einer Gruppe, einem Unternehmen oder einer Familie, wobei es sich hierbei meist um gesellschaftliche Eliten handelt.
Als Menschen mit dem „richtigen Stallgeruch“ bezeichnet man solche, die durch ihren Habitus, ihre Art zu reden, zu denken und sich zu verhalten, erkennen lassen, aus derselben (in der Regel großbürgerlichen oder adeligen) Gesellschaftsschicht zu stammen, einer speziellen Gruppe (wie Jäger, Segler) oder einer politischen Partei anzugehören, über gleiche Ausbildung, gleiches Auftreten und gleiche Beziehungen zu verfügen und somit die Fähigkeit zu besitzen, von der gewünschten Zielgruppe als „einer der ihren“ wahrgenommen zu werden und damit Glaubwürdigkeit zu gewinnen.

Becoming very rich is a multi-faceted goal that requires a combination of hard work, dedication, and determination. Some potential ways to become very rich include starting a successful business, investing in the stock market, or developing a high-demand skill and using it to offer valuable services to clients. It is also important to manage your finances wisely and avoid making costly mistakes that can derail your efforts to build wealth. Ultimately, the key to becoming very rich is to set clear goals, create a plan to achieve them, and stay focused and motivated on your path to success.
Some further questions to the Chat BotGPT:
In which way is it correct to state wealth is always relative?
Wealth is relative in the sense that what is considered wealthy can vary greatly depending on one’s perspective and circumstances. For example, a person living in a developing country may consider themselves wealthy if they have a steady income and a roof over their head, while a person living in a developed country may consider themselves wealthy only if they have a high net worth and access to many luxury goods. Additionally, wealth can also be relative within a given society or community, as someone with a high income in one city or town may not be considered wealthy in another area with a higher cost of living.
Is knowledge more important than wealth?
Many people believe that knowledge is more important than wealth, as knowledge can provide a sense of empowerment, self-sufficiency, and the ability to make informed decisions. Additionally, knowledge can lead to better opportunities and career advancement, which can ultimately lead to greater wealth.
However, wealth also has its advantages and it can provide financial security, access to resources, and the ability to make a difference in the world. Many people believe that wealth and knowledge are both important and they complement each other.
It is generally stated that both wealth and knowledge are important, but wealth without knowledge can be easily misused and knowledge without wealth may not be fully utilized.
Pls explain in detail to me financial security!
Financial security refers to having enough money to meet one’s basic needs, such as food, shelter, and healthcare, as well as having a cushion for unexpected expenses or emergencies. It also includes having the means to save for long-term goals such as retirement, children’s education, or purchasing a home.
Having financial security can provide a sense of peace of mind, as individuals do not have to worry about how they will pay their bills or whether they will be able to afford unexpected expenses. It also provides the flexibility to make choices in life, such as taking a lower-paying job that aligns with one’s values or passions, or being able to retire early.
Having financial security can also help individuals to weather financial downturns, such as a recession, or personal financial setbacks, such as job loss or medical expenses. It can also help to reduce stress and improve overall well-being.
To achieve financial security, individuals can focus on building an emergency fund, reducing debt, and creating a budget, as well as investing for the long term and planning for retirement. Additionally, financial literacy and understanding how to manage money effectively can also play an important role in achieving financial security.
Should I ask a financial adviser?
It can be beneficial to consult with a financial advisor if you want help creating a financial plan, understanding investment options, or navigating complex financial decisions. A financial advisor can provide guidance and advice on how to best manage your money and reach your financial goals.
A financial advisor can help you:
- Create a budget and savings plan
- Develop a strategy for paying off debt
- Create an investment portfolio
- Understand different types of insurance
- Create a plan for retirement
- Prepare for unexpected events
- Understand taxes and tax-advantaged investment options
It’s important to note that not all financial advisors are created equal. Some advisors work on commission and may recommend products that may not be in your best interest. It’s important to do your due diligence when selecting a financial advisor and to make sure they are a fiduciary, which means they are legally bound to act in your best interest.
You can ask for recommendations from friends or family, or check with professional organizations such as the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) or the Financial Planning Association (FPA) for a list of certified financial planners in your area.
Should I buy some real estate sooner or later?
Real estate can be a good investment option, as it can provide a steady stream of rental income and may appreciate in value over time. However, it’s important to keep in mind that investing in real estate also comes with risks.
It can be a good idea to invest in real estate if you:
- Have a long-term investment horizon
- Have a steady income to cover the mortgage and other costs associated with owning property
- Have experience in property management or are willing to learn
- Have a good understanding of the real estate market and have done your research on the area where you are considering investing
- Have enough cash or can secure financing to purchase the property
- Have a plan for how you will exit the investment (e.g. selling the property or renting it out)
It’s also important to keep in mind that investing in real estate requires a significant amount of money and also involves a lot of responsibilities. Before making such a decision, you should also consult with a financial advisor and a real estate professional to understand the risks and potential returns of investing in real estate, and to determine if it’s the right investment option for you.
Where exactly should I buy property?
The location of a property can have a significant impact on its value and rental potential. When considering where to buy real estate, it’s important to research and consider the following factors:
- Job market and economic growth: Properties in areas with strong job markets and economic growth tend to appreciate in value and have a higher rental demand.
- Demographics: Properties in areas with a growing population, particularly families with children, tend to have a higher rental demand.
- Proximity to amenities: Properties located near schools, shopping centers, public transportation, and other amenities tend to be more desirable and have a higher rental demand.
- Crime rate: Properties in areas with a low crime rate tend to be more desirable and have a higher rental demand.
- Local regulations: Properties in areas with strict regulations and high property taxes may be less desirable and have a lower rental demand.
It’s important to conduct thorough research and due diligence on any property or area you are considering investing in. This can include looking at things like local economic indicators, crime statistics, and demographic data, as well as talking to local real estate professionals and residents.
Additionally, you can also consider hiring a real estate agent who is well-versed in the area where you are considering buying. They can provide valuable information on the local market conditions, competition, and potential rental income.
What exactly is a portfolio?
A portfolio is a collection of investments that are owned by an individual or organization. The purpose of a portfolio is to diversify risk by holding a combination of assets that have different levels of risk and return. A diversified portfolio can help to minimize the overall risk of the investments, as well as increase the potential for returns.
There are different types of portfolios, but a typical investment portfolio will include a mix of different asset classes, such as stocks, bonds, real estate, and cash. The allocation of assets within the portfolio will depend on an individual’s risk tolerance, investment goals, and time horizon.
For example, a conservative portfolio may have a higher allocation to bonds and cash, as these assets tend to have lower levels of risk and volatility. A more aggressive portfolio may have a higher allocation to stocks, as these assets tend to have higher levels of risk and volatility but also offer the potential for higher returns.
It’s important to regularly review and rebalance a portfolio to ensure that it is aligned with an individual’s investment goals and risk tolerance and to take into account any changes in the market conditions.
It’s also important to note that having a well-diversified portfolio with a mix of assets is considered as a key element of an investment strategy, but it’s not the only one, and it’s not a guarantee of positive returns.
