Affluence is more than money. It is the total development of a nation. In a place of real affluence, people need not worry the bread for tomorrow, and he is free. His inner freedom could be supported by outer freedom.
For example, if he is Mozart, he has inner freedom to write music. In a real affluent society, he will have complete support. And the society will be benefited.
When mankind had reached such status, mankind has real possibility to step forward to improve the planet.
For the time being, may be we cannot hope for such real affluence. Our first aim should be higher income for everyone only.
Higher income comes from wisdom.
Wisdom is philosophy. When people can think properly, they have wisdom.
Wisdom brings in might.
With wisdom and might, you will be rich. That is actually very simple.
