This obscenity is just one of the consequences of the obscenity that is capitalism, with capital amassed in obscene amounts by individuals, and then spent on private priorities rather than on public needs. Capitalists can spend their money to create jobs (e.g., building a new plant) or they can spend it to destroy jobs (by buying and merging companies and then firing the "redundant" employees); they can spend their money on societal needs (like the Gates Foundation and its spending on global health), or on complete inanities like the Bush Library, which will assuredly have less connection with reality and less knowledge to impart than a collection of MAD Magazines.
