Today the brightest of people want the highest paying jobs and many of them get it. They work very hard, maybe from 9 in the morning to 10 at night and are able to build big companies and organizations. The basic objective however is to get increasingly more for themselves in the tangible domain. It is a transaction. If I do A, I must get B in return and immediately. The concept of giving without expectation is now considered archaic. Even philanthropic organizations like Rotary and Lions clubs have members largely with other agendas.
