    Well, I should think it is power that corrupts, not money alone (unless it rains on the power-hungry). Imelda Marcos, the dictator’s wife had thousands of shoes, most never really worn. Saddam Hussein had more palaces than he could realistically ever use. But then, both (and other extravagant cranks) never had to earn that money themselves. That seems to make a lot of difference, looking at the above examples.
