Romney’s riches: A Russian perspective

Romney refuses to put his riches at the center stage of the election campaign.  I wonder why.  Probably because he is quite affluent.  The truth is that either candidate cannot complain of being poor.  But somehow this makes Romney look richer.  The Russian perspective on this seems very sensible then:  the one who is richer, will experience diminishing marginal returns from additional wealth; therefore, is less likely to exploit his position for personal gain.  Who said Russians are bad economists?  // *
