Bad Choices

I was having a conversation with a person, in the lower socioeconomic scale – per her own distinction – than most, and was talking about purchasing expensive TV cable package for her grandson. And the sad part is that, she took it as a necessity. What kind of stupidity is that?

I’m pretty sure there are a whole bunch of high net worth individuals who think having a Ferrari or something is a necessity. But I would bet the poor gets screwed more, way more, on prices than the rich. Simple example of that would be prices of Groceries in low income neighborhoods, versus their equivalent in affluent ones. The poor pays way more.

In a way, no wonder the poor is poorer and the rich is richer – aside from this being the only reason – paying excessive prices for goods and services.
