When is enough 'Enough'?

 Back in April the President of the United States said the following as part of his remarks about Wall Street in Quincy, Illinois:

We’re not, we’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you’re providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy. (source: Hot Air)

I, for one, believe that is every American's right to decide for himself how much money he should make, and whether he has made enough.  The economics of wealth suggest that those who make the most money benefit the economy (and the rest of us indirectly) proportionately more than others.  That is not necessarily why they make more (and more) but it is a good thing, and it is an answer to the question: When is enough 'enough'? If you wonder why the economy is in the doldrums you might ask yourself if the views of our President might be a major reason.
