Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I would completely buy this idea. However, I tend to be pessimistic about that: there will always be people wanting to stand out by being havemores. More money, more clout, well, just more. I tend to think that there is a greed "gene" in each man, civilised though he may be. An old story. Cf Hobbes.
