I didn’t finish the article yet, but in the example posted, I’d say both people were dysfunctional- one spent nothing and the other spent everything.
Hopefully the article doesn’t examine the spending of we audiophiles- I’m afraid we’d come up the most dysfunctional of them all.
No mentions of audiophilia but covers a lot of ground, more than just money and how we deal with it.
It’s lengthy but few wasted words.
The very purpose of any hobby is to waste time and money.
I like to believe the purpose of any hobby is to bring happiness to and enrich our lives.
Money is freedom, freedom to enjoy hobbies!
