Frayed Economics

Simply put, we spend money on things we don’t really need. Take the Starbucks coffee and the cellular phone for example. Both things we could survive without. In days gone by - have lived without.
Today we live outside the realm of necessities. Riddled with debt. Alive in luxury.
Do we really need it? Or is it we’ve grown used to it?
Take the restaurant meal, the spa or a night out at the movies.
Consumerism has heights. But the economy has its woes.
Energy, food and water – necessities. Anything outside of that.
Frayed economics.
