Quote of the Moment
"Debt is your future self sending you money back in time. So the question is, are you and your future self both happy with the deal?"
--Tim Harford - talking on NPR in part how as a student economist, he over-scrimped and saved, and kind of wishes he could undo that.

As I've previously mentioned, I like the idea of a distinct "future self", related but not quite the same as who I am now.

Turns out Tim Harford also runs an interesting Undercover Economist blog with this bit of career advice:
Economist Andrew Oswald believes we work too hard and under-invest in friendships. So if my career advice is depressing, ignore it and talk to your friends instead.
We gotta watch out for that!
