If everything in our lives revolves around money - how we acquire it, how we decide to use it, how we can become more financially secure - why would it be any different for those in the political sphere, who drive policy and governance?

Is is because they are well off? Have the rich shown anything other than being even more likely than the average person to seek to accumulate wealth?
