Oh really? The powers that be care about what makes them obscenely rich, and not much else. It's the entire reason the chasm between the 99% and the 1% continues to grow.
Ask yourself : why would you want to be obscenely rich?
You probably have a list of things you want.
Maybe you want to travel around the world, in first class. But what good will it do if natural sites are destroyed by pollution, cities are so rampant with crime you can't leave your armored vehicle, and historical sites are in ruins due to the lack of maintenance.
Maybe you want to go to space. But for designing your spaceship, you need well educated rocket scientists and engineers. How will you get that if people are more busy surviving than studying.
Maybe you want to live a long and healthy life. But how will you get that if a lack of proper care cause all kinds of infectious diseases to spread. And if you are the only one who have access to some treatment, it means you are essentially a guinea pig, and I think you'd rather prefer something well tested.
In all these cases, your wealth means nothing is the world behind it is in chaos.
