A person's worth nowadays seems to be judged according to social status and material possessions. Old-fashioned values, such as honour, kindness and trust, no longer seem important. To what extent do you agree or disagree.

Recently, value is most often placed on people's wealth and affluence rather than ancient moral principles as honour, kindheartedness and loyalty which is believed to be necessary. I totally believe that these morals still
an upper hand in all human
a purposeful or industrious undertaking (especially one that requires effort or boldness)
and existence,
good reputation should be a golden key in
the evaluation
of a
value. A group of the populace who support riches as the main determining factor in humans' worth assessment may be
right as wealthy people donate and assist the government in building social infrastructure, which in turn, serves as a key indicator in a community's development goals. To
expatiate on these, most key figures in the society virtually control local and foreign trades of which their benevolence promotes a nation's economy.
For instance
, in Nigeria, most shares and scholarship programs that drive her economy is being held by top politicians and influential public figures.
, despite the above claims and beliefs, the idea that moral virtue should be neglected while evaluating a man's worth is entirely unacceptable and
, should be reconsidered. Most businesses that serve the world are sustained on integrity of which having employees who are loyal, kind and truthful is a huge bonus to the company and society at large.
In addition
, a country that desires to attain political stability should consider these good
as benchmarks during

an election
and role appointments as these are major determinants in promoting peace in the world. In conclusion, moral values should be incorporated while judging a person's value as these are the essentials, other than one's social status and physical possessions.
