cluelessness and rage

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Jen McCreight rages against capitalist cluelessness as displayed in Sarah Butcher's money-saving tips for bankers piece. Butcher's whine that "bankers and their once free-spending wives are suddenly becoming familiar with the art of thriftiness" falls on deaf ears, as tips such as send your kids to state schools (#3), iron your own shirts (#6), and cook your own food (#14) represent a reasonable status quo for most Americans--not a sacrifice.

Exhortations to "Stop skiing, or ski more cheaply" (#9) and Ensure both adults are working (#16) are rather galling, but this one is the worst:

11. Sell the second home

It's easy to see why such cluelessness can inspire rage.
