So what if a firm’s fee income is up by 10, 20 or 50%? All the partners in all the firms listed are earning more than any rational person could reasonably need or even wish for, and I wonder what can possibly motivate them to carry on pushing for even more money, year after year. Do any of them think or care about whether they are actually contributing anything to the overall happiness of the nation? It’s a reminder of how so many people know the price of everything but the value of nothing, and I’m deeply grateful to have escaped from this culture of greed.
