Getting Richer but Feeling Poorer :(

Every time I see a new car in our neighborhood or notice an old building being pulled down to be replaced by a new one, I can see progress. I can notice that our economy is growing. The value of my assets is increasing and, yet, I feel worse!

I am reminded of articles I have seen in the last year about growth not being sustainable - one was a thought provoking talk "Tim Jackson's economic reality check".
" [We are] persuaded to spend money we don’t have on things we don’t need to create impressions that won’t last on people we don’t care about.” (Tim Jackson)
