Despite the fact that we live in the 21st century myths are still present in our lives. One of the oldest myths which historically has accompanied human beings from the dawn of history is the myth of wealth which, expressing the thing historically, appeared in the most various forms (tales, fairy tales, legends, the motives of the paradise, etc.). In the present time the desire of becoming rich has dominated the minds of the majority of people. Some people regard wealth as the true holy grail. Unfortunately, neither economists nor philosophers, nor moralists are interested in these issues. On the contrary, wealth is regarded by some of them as an expression of “practical cleverness”, “intelligence”, ability to manage one’s life, a symptom of an initiative, that is, resourcefulness etc. Saying it the most briefly it is the praise of wealth. The myth of wealth spreads like a pandemic, but is it the aim of a human life?
