It seems appropriate to mention that Solomon's life was a little more complicated than this-he ended up straying into idolotry, getting caught up in foreign entanglements, and spent a lot of Israel's money on wasteful things, such that the united kingdom he inherited from his father was divided after his death into the North and South kingdoms of Israel and Judah.

Not that wisdom isn't a good thing, or that Solomon wasn't wise, but even the story of Solomon's wealth speaks to the dangers of excess and the temptation of wealth and power (and the influence of the people who you choose to surround yourself with).
