The financial crisis turns me on.

October 1, 2008

Just a quick post on a subject thats quite hot these days – the financial crisis.

Man I love it! – it’s wonderful that it’s finally here. After so many years of “pyramid-scheme” economics on the housing prices, and in the general economy the financial crisis that IS to be expected sooner or later has finally arrived – goodbye to excessive spending, farewell to people thinking they are better persons just because they are succesful consumers who has bought some new expensive thing they did not really need.

Hello to a time where the most sensible thing you can do is NOT take out a huge loan to buy a house expecting it to triple its value in a few years, but actually holding down a steady job with a reasonable wage – welcome to a time where the defining character of people will not be their consuming power.

So – let’s all hope for a real hardcore recession, a time to bring back true values, to find value in family and friends instead of a new car.
