Unemployment: Brought to You by Sustainability?

Unemployment: Brought to You by Sustainability?

The truth at its core is that perpetual growth is the enemy of sustainability and nothing grows in perpetuity. In the past few years, my family’s income sure hasn’t! It has been far less than what it was when the economy was cooking, but oddly with a smaller house, only one car, less spending on entertainment, vacations and non-essentials we are happier. We found that working 70+ hours a week wasn’t worth the toll it took on us. We now enjoy more time together, we are in much better shape (I lost 90lbs), we took up hobbies that cost nothing other than a small initial investment (hiking and backpacking), we actually have more economic security because we pay closer attention to our money and our health and when we do buy stuff we go to Craigslist first or even (I can’t believe I am admitting it) Goodwill.
