Have your say

Your billionaire compilation (5 March) is so indicative of the attitude by some in the media who regard obsessive wealth acquisition as somehow a positive thing, despite those who have it never being able to spend it in several lifetimes while others go hungry.

It is time that an obsession with money is regarded like another obsession, as a mental health issue.
