I have always believed that I was a slave to my money. I never really had a reason to spend money other than the way I wanted to save it. I’ve always made it a goal to always save as much as possible, and even if I didn’t I’d do it for the feeling and sense of relief that comes from knowing there are always more coins in my pocket.
The way I think about it, there are two kinds of money: (1) money that you can spend because you are saving for a rainy day and (2) money that you are saving for a rainy day. In general, it’s important to save the second kind of money because you know it’s a rainy day. So saving that first kind of money to put towards a rainy day is a waste of resources.
If you are on the edge of a financial emergency, then money is a good thing to save. Unfortunately its also a good thing to save until that rainy day. It’s important to remember that the same principle applies if you are on the edge of a financial emergency with more money, because if you have more money, then you are on the edge of a financial emergency.
But if you’re already on the edge of a financial emergency, then saving it is a good thing, because it will buy you time until you can get into a more stable financial position again.
In Odessa, Texas, the average single person spends about $200.00 per month of their hard earned money on things like necessities like food, drink, and gas. But the average family spends approximately $1,000.00 per month of their hard earned money on things like groceries, clothing, entertainment, and other necessities. So, when the average family is on the edge of a financial emergency, they use the same principle to save, borrow, or pawn their hard earned money.
In a similar way, when the average household is on the edge of a financial emergency, they use the same principle to save, borrow, or pawn their hard earned money.
This is true regardless of income or wealth or how much money a family has. It’s a “selfish” problem because the government is able to make money from taxing the poor (or middle class) for their own good. But we don’t use the same kind of selfishness in our families as we do in our workplaces, or our homes. In fact, we use the exact same kind of selfishness in our workplaces, homes, and our car.
The reason that our families, workplaces, homes, and cars are a particular type of selfishness is because they’re all businesses. We’re all shareholders in a business; we all own shares of a business. This is why when a company has a bad run, or has a lot of layoffs, we all leave. And the reason that these businesses are businesses is because they’re profitable.
The “I’m leaving because…” thing is actually a common part of the day. We all leave because we feel a need to check things out. We leave because we want a better life. We leave because we feel we have no one to turn to. We leave because we feel guilty. We leave because of the economy.
This is an example of the “economy” of the economy. This is the money made from selling goods and services. In the beginning of the movie, the finance person is having a bad day. When she asks his boss about how she can make him a better life, he tells her, “If you leave now, you’ll be rich.
