How is the economy affecting you?
I’m not spending that much money this year (no trips, no endangered condor egg omelets) as I normally would. My TIAA-CREF statements are quite a bit lower so I probably won’t be retiring by the time I’m 35 as I expected. And my stock options are so low that I think I actually owe money to the NASDAQ.
And the usual fears of rising expenses, layoffs, and gigantic hairy centipedes are always on my mind.
