About SEC

  1. "Better" is hard to define. She is better at appreciating that simple things (like nature) can make you happier than having a big shiny house to compete with the neighbors. She is definitely not better at making money / saving for the future as I can't imagine a handful of goats will help them get out of their debt situation.
  2. It could happen to anyone

    Yes anyone can lose their job at any time that why responsible people live as much as possible within their means and save up for that possibility; the characters in the book didn't actually lose their jobs, but at the start of the book were quite happy spending more than they earned every month when they could have easily paid their taxes had they not wanted a big house or private school for their kids. The sheer lack of common sense (i.e. live within your means...if it is possible to do so) really annoyed me.
