Money is boring.
I think many people think it is. It seems elusive to some and in too much abundance to others. But money effects us all in profound ways. It affects the way we see the world, who we interact with and how we interact with them, what we do and don’t do with our time. Whether we want to think it or not, economics drive our lives, determine our opportunities , decide our material comfort level and if our basic needs are met.
I am a young person. I don’t make a lot of money. Actually, I make a little less than $10 an hour. I’m trying to pay my living expenses, plan for my future, and have fun. I think many other people are in this same position, too. Sometimes I look around and wonder how a lot of us are even making it. But we are.
I don’t think this is a problem unique to young people. No matter how much money we make, I think we all know what it feels like to deal with what we feel is a shortfall.
I am not an economist but I like to read, write, research, and talk to people. I find economics facinating yet practical. I think it is important for everyone to know about money and how to make it work for them. Knowing more is empowering and can save a lot of time and effort. Also, I don’t think there is much information out there for people like me. So I’ve decided to create it. I hope you find it useful and interesting. Your communication is welcome and your readership appreciated.
Now let’s bring home some bacon…
