That goes for any luxury goods. Does anyone really need an $8M Bugatti Centodieci when a Veyron was $1.5M?

Does anyone really need a $50M house on the water in South Florida? When there are rather nice examples for $10M?

Does anyone really need a $100k DAC when the ones for $2.5k are excellent and one would be hard pressed to ever tell a difference between them...

God bless excess and capitalism. Enjoy it while it lasts as the alternatives to capitalism will be far less enjoyable.

No one will be happy when they come to take and redistribute the excess wealth by force, like they have in the past revolutions.
