It’s February and so far my resolution to get on top of the debit/diet is not going that well.
The editing my life part is still going pretty good and my house seems to be getting bigger now that I have less clutter, but I am having a harder time with the part about how and where I spend my money.
The goal is to have a plan and I am surprised at people in my age bracket who don’t have one. The real eye-opener is when you get those yearly Social Security statements showing just how poor you are going to be when you stop working.
There’s been a reversal of fortunes between Canada and America, and I’m not happy about it.
According to The Economist, Canada is doing well as America continues to struggle.
Our wiser, more cautious friends to the north avoided the housing bubble and financial collapse of 2008. They returned to robust growth in 2009 and have been growing since.
Unlike America, Canada’s debt and deficits are in good order. Canada expects to balance its budget by 2015 — whereas America’s budget comes up short every month.
