Today's topic: Money

My opinion:
People are very touchy when it comes to talking about money. With the way our economy has been lately you'd want to have comfort in the fact that you are earning enough to support your family.

This isn't really a controversial issue but I've been thinking a lot about how we distribute money for incomes. Like celebrities and pro-athletes get paid millions of dollars when we could use that money to help starving children or give the homeless a home.

I'm not really sure if there is a specific reason famous people get paid way above average but I don't think it's really fair. Why is entertaining people rewarded more than saving people from fires or teaching future generations valuable skills?

I guess if you're living the life with millions of dollars you wouldn't want to give it up but is a life full of comfort really worth a human life? I understand that the famous do help and affect millions of lives but I don't think they have to be paid so much to be "famous". Why can't we have celebrities that are paid based on their job qualifications?

What do you think? Do you think our system of providing incomes is efficient and fair? Leave your comments below and keep doing what you do!
