Affluenza, a portmanteau of affluence and influenza, is a term used by critics of consumerism. It is thought to have been first used in 1954 but it gained legs as a concept with a 1997 PBS documentary of the same name and the subsequent book, Affluenza: The All-Consuming Epidemic (2001, revised in 2005, 2014). Voluntary Simplicity, Duane Elgin

In The Golden Ghetto, Jessie H. ONeill, granddaughter of Charles Erwin Wilson, one-time president of General Motors, provides a penetrating look at why attaining wealth proves to be a hollow achievement for many. A psychotherapist, ONeill has based her professional practice on understanding and treating the problems of those who have amassed great wealth, and her book is both a description of their lives and an analysis of and prescription for the problems theyve had to face.

While ONeills main focus is on the very rich, the lessons to be learned from their lives have a far broader application. The Golden Ghetto is in fact inhabited by millions of Americans, rich and poor alike, who embrace and endlessly pursue the fantasy that more is better, while allowing all that is truly worthwhile loving relationships, the selfless giving of oneself, and spiritual growth to fall by the wayside.

The The Golden Ghetto shows us how to right our own relationship with money, and offers insightful suggestions for repairing the psychological and cultural damage our misguided beliefs about money, power, and happiness have caused.

Summary: In her own words, "The positive effects of affluence are apparent, highly touted, and easily discernible. The goal of this book is to "balance the scale," to disclose the truth about the darker implications of acquiring and living with money (page 1)." In my words, she pulls back the curtain to show the dark side, that too many people who wish only for the American Dream never understand and accidentally stumble into headlong.

Note on me, I'm a financial planner, heir to a substantial fortune and a licensed Christian minister. So I've made a study of books like this for some time.

Jessie, and I feel as though I know her so I can call her by her first name, has written some of the best four chapters on understanding the affluent anywhere. She provides interviews with Peter Buffet, son of Warren Buffet, Alex Forbes and great chunks of her own personal story to make some really compelling reading material and helpful insights into the wealthy.

The name: A ghetto is "a place or condition in which a select group of people is separated from the majority (page 22)."

Strengths:
1. She speaks from personal experience as an heir and professional interviews and insights. In the introduction which lasts 17 pages she tells her story in painstakingly, "I-can't-believe-she-put-that-part-in-print" detail.
2. She describes with painful details the" image is almost everything (page 8)" world of the affluent.
3. Her pulse on the problems is spot on. She asks not for pity of the wealthy but merely seeks to show what you may not have seen.
4. She covers the "wealthism" problem that frequently gets overlooked. Too often most poor or non-affluent people have a thought that wealthy shouldn't have any problems. She handles the issues here with class and insight.
5. The Ted Turner quote on page 67 about success is an "empty bag" highlights the loneliness at the top problems.
6. Chapter 4 describes the downsides for children of the wealthy and is fabulous!!

Weaknesses:
1. I differ with the author on worldview and find her solutions to not be mine. They may be fine solutions but since I'm not aligned with her, I found them hollow and "follow your heart (page 176)" Disney cheapness. But the first chapters about the problems can't be beat.
2. The author seems to be a feminist, maybe not all the way but too far for my tastes. Chapter 5, "The Cocktail Party": Money, Gender and Power" is really where the hints from the earlier chapters seems to rise up. I completely understand the family founder syndrome and the complete lack of politically correctness regarding gender roles found in many old wealth families. Jessie's solutions again aren't mine. This is also a very personal issue for the author, since she tells us she ended a marriage due to the "perceived `inequity'" of her money compared to her ex-husband. She her pet peeve is understood but too far for my tastes.
3. Chapter 7 is also fairly good on some of the solutions for children on "healing from affluenza" and I may have been checked out from the book at this point due to differences in chapters 5 and 6.

So bottom line you can't find a better description of the problems of affluence from a better source. She has written wonderfully on the difficulties of wealth from a personal perspective, covering the essential topics and a few more. Well written and very accurately described problems, just not my cup of tea on solutions.

Her unique perspective on the "American Dream" makes this book unusually insightful. If we feel uncomfortable with another person's wealth, think how we make them feel!
Ms. O'Neill takes a close look at the personality of workaholics and other compulsive behaviors and how they affect spouses, offspring, and coworkers. She then examines how the "success" of the workaholic often misleads others to think that money solves all problems and brings happiness.
You will be surprised by your own thoughts regarding the wealthy and their descendents. I hope you will be equally surprised by the envy, hate and manipulation by those who choose to get close to wealthy people. The problems related to wealth she names "Affluenza". Once you understand it, you'll begin to see signs of it in many unexpected places. "Affluenza" affects rich, middle class and poor, each in its own way.
This is one of two books on psychology that I recommend the investor read. It is important to know that much of investors' success is related to understanding the market's psychology. This includes understanding the individual participants' minds as well.

I liked the book a great deal. I skimmed through part of it, as some of the material was for psychologists and not laymen. I am interested in the current state of wealth in the US. I also like to read about the lives and woes of the rich.

Interesting words from the inside of the money machine. Addictions, aside from the accumulation of wealth, as well as the means to disguise them. Intriguing...... This book covers the whole enchilada.

Good insights on the life or the rich. Gave me a new opinion on the rich, a more sympathetic one.

All I can say is that this is the best book ever written about this subject. Jessie has an uncanny understanding of all the issues surrounding wealth, especially as it relates to the family related issues. I have given this book as a gift to a dozen people and they all can't believe how much she "gets it."
The book was in excellent, I mean very excellent condition. The book is well written, I recommend it for everyone. love it, thanks Amazon.
