    Really interesting article. I had never thought about it before, but I am definitely on the defensive side of things, and one of those people that says life is too short. It's not always a good thing, and it's the biggest clash I have with Dave Ramsey. I am willing to go into debt for a vacation with the family, because ya know, I may not make it to retirement, or my wife may not, or one my kids may die young. I would rather make memories with my family now than be loaded when I retire.

    I agree, this is a good article and sound guidance. Hopefully, as time goes on, we'll put some restraint on exporting jobs to slave economies so that quality, reasonable income work is available here in the U.S., Canada and even Mexico. (A little more education and rule of law, and Mexico would become more of an economic asset as a neighbor, and less of a place to flee)

    This is very sound advice for managing money, managing emotions and bracing for potentional / inevitable economic turbulence that comes with a rapidly evolving employment landscape.

    This article also explains surveys reported by Pew Research about how Millennials are significantly more likely to avoid marriage and starti families.
