  1. I work with the poor. I think managing money is not even an option. The only money I see they have is what is currently in their pockets.

  2. Its an interesting idea, how people of the world making little to no income manage to feed, clothe and nurture their families. It seems we as credit-hungry Americans might have a thing or two to learn from them.
