Good point for discussion. Is saving for ones retirement a good thing and something that should be encouraged and lauded? Could the actions of a person who has saved adequately for retirement be considered "superior" to the actions of a person who has not saved for retirement?

Sure. But it's only one aspect of a person. I may be smart, but I eat poorly. I may work hard, but I rarely call my parents.

SP may be frugal, but he is bereft of compassion. Is he superior or inferior to a person who manages money poorly but cares about other people?
