He does not like feeling helpless. I have blogged in the past about my own quirk of never wanting to feel financially helpless. Based on society's problem with indebtedness, overall financial illiteracy and studies we read about low 401k balances it seems as though many people are on their way to financial helplessness. This is not about being wealthy so much as being self-sufficient, being able to pay your bills, absorb reasonably sized one-off events and not have your life turned inside out due to spending beyond your means.
The focus here on things like saving more, spending less, monetizing a hobby, going to great lengths to avoid portfolio meltdowns are all aimed toward avoiding feeling financially helpless. As Woody Allen once said; there is no situation where having more money made it worse.
