in countless situations We have seen how people with great purchasing power waste their money on high-end vehicles or other valuable things such as yachts, extravagant houses, jewelry, etc.. Likewise, over time we can see the results that these actions can have in certain millionaires, such as his bankruptcy or the desperate sale of his properties to meet the expenses.
