I`m talking about misers, you`re talking about spendthrifts. They`re both extremes; just opposite sides of the same coin, and equally reprehensible.
I have been out of school for a while- I own a home, car is paid off...I don`t waste money. I am actively saving for my retirement- because whose going to take care of me when I am old...you?With the spendthrift mentality that is so prevalent today, there will be alot of homeless 80`s &90`s babies & emi (pl. emo?) when retirement age rolls around.As far as your insight to the global economy, I have heard better from the crazy homeless man @port authourity. There is much more to economics than just supply & demand. A healthy economy also is indicative of the financial health of its people...too much credit + not enough savings = failure...pure & simple.
Look, people hate cheap people. Everyone knows it. It`s instinctive. And there are very good internal reasons, even if most can`t verbalize it. In a nutshell, they`re parasites in various degrees...essentially trying to take from society more than they give.
*Video games and consoles: aaaaah maybe, but sometimes you wait out until the price goes down. Otherwise you wouldn`t want a game some brat already finished and scatched the cd just to piss you off.
*Cars: definetly... unless you really can afford the brand new straight-from-the-factory car.
...not a good list, not interesting enough to be good.
Oh yeah fk, I find YOU effing repulsive. I`d like to see you pay $20,000 in tutition and not bitch about how expensive things are.
THE BOOKSTORE BUYS NEW BOOKS FOR LESS THAN HALF-PRICE. GET THEM FROM `AMAZON.COM` OR SOMEWHERE ELSE, THOSE B`TCHES ARE 4PROFIT INSTITUTIONS. RIP STUDENTS OFF THOSE GODDAMNED THIEVES!!!
Oh, and NO I don`t agree with this article, we do need all of these things new, or it`d kill the economy and they`d stop being made, but for those of us who cannot afford to buy brand new, we have to look for the best deals we can get, but this article is just common sense.
I am a journalist!
No, I buy books, most games, well, most of my stuff first hand. I prefer it, books especially, because sometimes the books are all dog-eared, probably made by a dog.
crap... my laptop.
