I'm not one of those end of the world guys. I'm nervous, for sure, about the course of things. I should probably pay less attention to the "markets", financial blogs, gold bugs, conspiracy theorists...and just have faith in my family and friends. With that said..this piece in today's NY Times should, in my opinion, be required reading for all of us.
Let's be honest...we know that if we keep using our credit cards and only paying off the minimum balance, we'll dig ourselves a hole so deep we'll never get out. So why do we assume the government can do the same thing and pull it off?
