The state of psychological distress (or, perhaps, arrogance combined with hubris) which leads people to build huge mansions – or to knock down huge mansions in order to build even larger ones. It’s the real estate version of the desire to drive around town in a Hummer – only much, much worse in terms of wasted energy and money.
D'ya see in Forbes that story about the 40,000 square foot mansion in Florida that reached 90% completion before the owners “lost interest in the project”?
