Wisdom vs. Wealth

Wisdom vs. Wealth. Brains vs. Money. Can the new science of NeuroEconomics make you rich?  I would like to think that wisdom can get you wealth, when applied. If you were given a choice between being given great wisdom or great wealth, which would you choose? Why? And based off of your selection, how would you use it?

Re: Wisdom vs. Wealth

For me, the answer is pretty easy. Though I'm no genius, I think I am fairly intelligent, and I'm still not wealthy. :) If everyone on the planet were wise, there would be too much competition for the wealth (as there already is), so wisdom wouldn't guarantee wealth, even if used to your best ability at times.

Ironically, many times it's the extremely intelligent people who have depression.

With that said, have you ever noticed how most retarded people are extremely happy? :) Not that I'd prefer to go to that extreme, but I think I'd be willing to cash in some of my wisdom for mucho wealth, and be stupid as a mule, but having a good ol time vacationing and globe trotting. :p

Well, if it's the intelligent who know so much about the world that they become depressed, and generally speaking, unless it was a lotto win or a handout, it's also the intelligent who are wealthy, plus as was pointed out, both the retarded and intelligent have the same fits of rage, the only true happiness is to be as dumb as a box of rocks (minus drooling all over yourself and others), and be filthy stinking rich. ;)

 

You'll get to go anywhere you want, do anything you want to do, buy love, and not even have to worry about making all of the plans because since you'd be too stupid to do it, your handlers with the intelligence would do everything for you. :)

Well, unless they create a common sense plugin upgrade, I don't think wisdom will help many... you still have to have the know-how to use it...

I'd pick brains over money any day... I'd rather have the reputation of being intelligent even without being rich over being paris hilton...er... dumb and rich... ignorance my be bliss (no wonder she's so happy)... but it's funny as he** to make fun of stupid people

A most excellent point Trin, I've known plenty of people who aren't stupid who have their heads in a very dark place :)

I would like to say the money, I'm not a  genius but I'm smart enough to handle myself, but I do believe knowledge is invaluable and I would never trade things that I've learned for money....so I don't know
