Well, yes, it's egotistical in a way that is hard to imagine, but at least he's created a museum for his collection on 5th Avenue and 86th St., not far from the other major museums in the city.

Immoral?

Ummm, that money still exists. It didn't disappear. It just belongs to somebody else now, and nobody is hungrier because of this transaction.

Ding!
The system is inequitable and imperfect and probably will disappear up its own f-stop some day, but it works well enough.
Way I see it; is the 'rich' get some together, and invest it, and it works to keep others in jobs (unless it's invested in some sweat-shop factories in the low-cost labour economies of the Far East).
Even so, it's a bit of a strain having all that money - continuallly wondering if you're going to be robbed.
Nah; not for me.
