What most people do not realize is that money does not equal evolutionary merit.
Meaning, the blind respect, and hall-passes we grant people with money (or even whole industries) are not in correlation with how they strengthen the collective interests of humanity. Hence, not until we link the merit of money to our collective evolutionary interests should you respect and listen to people with money, otherwise you are just proliferating their vile maxim (all for myself and nothing for anyone else) at the expense of others.
The lack of merit of money, in turn, dictates how money does not equal risk, from an investment perspective. A subject for another time.
