Some people can handle money and can treat it with the respect it deserves. The problem a poor person has with coming into wealth is that, despite the fact he is now a millionaire, he is still surrounded by poor family and friends. Rich people have to surround themselves with other rich and financially-successful people. Poor friends cannot help a rich friend. They will only want things and expect things. If you give, they will expect more. If you don't give, they will be resentful. It's like Shakespeare's play, Timon of Athens.
