Does money control you?
The answer in your head was probably no. I have a good grasp of my spending habits and living habits, i know how to manage my money well. The real question is why do you do it, work a job instead of doing what ever you want? And the simple answer is money. Why do we need to get a job? To make money to live. And in my opinion the cost of living is too high in some places. It wasn't a Ted talk that inspired this question but a documentary called Zeitgeist Addendum the second movie of three.
