THE VALUE OF MONEY   4 comments

Yes, I love my Movado, but the point I wanted to make a couple of blogs ago was the wild discrepancy in the meaning of money. For example, today on the consignment web there was a “Chloe small toss shoulder bag” available for $1,195.00. Or you might have preferred the “Balenciaga neoclassic city mini bag” in pink for $1,645.00 (estimated retail value $1850.00.)

Do I need to point out what either of those amounts would have meant to a family about to be evicted?

That’s all. More thoughts tomorrow.

  1. Wild indeed! Do you think it ever will change? I wonder

  2. Yes, Mona. Yes! Eisenhower’s statement about military expenditures applies to household spending habits as well. The money should go to stop evictions.

    • and support the landlords who are also affected. There’ s broader application too. Just think what a difference it would make if the very wealthy paid their full share for Social Security and Medicare, or on the income from their wealth. I have no objection to people having massive wealth. What I object to is the poverty at the other end. And WWJD? Thanks for commenting.
