I’ve been thinking about how to survive the next five years, so I decided to put together a list of ways I could afford to live.
I decided to do this after reading the Financial Times article on the ’20s financial crisis, which described how a ’30s-era family could have ‘barely made it to the end of its working life’.
It’s a similar story with a lot of my friends, but we’re all a lot closer now.
While the ’50s and ’60s were the golden age for people making a living, the ’70s and the ’80s were all about making sure that we were living a lifestyle that made us financially secure, so that we had enough to eat, buy stuff and invest in our future.
The point is that we’re on a path towards a more sustainable world, but there’s a big gap between where we are now and where we should be.
