The Pearl is causing Kino to turn into one of the men he despised in the beginning of the book. In the beginning the doctor was selfish and won 't help Coyotito unless he was well paid. This enraged Kino because all the doctor cared about was his income. When Kino was put into a position where he had that chance to change his way of life he leaped at the opportunity. When he was offered money for the pearl Kino believed his pearl wasn 't worthy of any of the low offers.
He feels terrible for the pain he has caused them. It is one thing to have his own case to worry about, but it is another to be weighed down with the guilt of being, however unintentionally, the source of these poor fools' misery.

He does not care for money as a source of wealth as is common, but instead, he views it as a method of controlling other people.
I wonder if Mark did this because he knew that his books would be all around the world so he wanted to look good. When really he was a very rude person and not enjoyable. If you don 't believe me remember what Mark said about killing the man? This is what he says in a book about himself.

This is illustrated when Mr Birling says, “Now look here, Inspector –”and the Inspector cuts him off with, “He must wait his turn.” The Inspector undermines Mr Birling’s authority over his own family, creating tension between them and fueling their ongoing feud for control. Mr Birling considers himself a well-respected man and he believes that he is too important to be investigated by the police. He feels that he should be treated with a higher degree of respect than other people. However, when the Inspector arrives, his authority and respect that he normally receives has vanished; not even his children listen to him and instead choose to listen to the Inspector.

A Genuine Value In William Maxwell’s TLWB, the author emphasizes the calmness of a wealthy couple toward meeting with a breakin by burglars. On the other hand, the story of D.H. Lawrence’s TRHW is about a boy who sacrifices himself because of going mad to fill his greedy mother’s desire of getting luck.
