« Depression or Not? | Main | Recession is 'Official:' Is It Time To Look Forward? »


Free Your Mind

This is a good post. I have been noticing that a lot of people, because of this "bad economy" are now cutting back and focusing on more important things!

But considering that the vast majority of people are living 2 paychecks away from bankruptcy, and also considering that the vast majority of people can't retire at retirement age... hasn't the economy ALWAYS been bad?

It's sad that people have to be "reduced" to a bare minimum before they can separate "wants" from "needs"

Maybe some people can learn a valuable LIFE lesson from this, and make a LIFE change towards contentment.

This may help our own "personal" economies.

Kent @ The Financial Philosopher


I agree and will add that the average person does not think rationally with regard to money matters and that action (or lack thereof) are defined more by ignorance and uncertainty than by knowledge and stability.

"Fear always springs from ignorance." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
