In todays world:
"It's not the man who dies with the most toys, but the man who dies with the most toys "that are not paid for" is who truly wins!"
"Old Money Folks" have a rule of paying cash for all of their toys, "New Money Folks" I find like to leverage to purchase toys. The difference becomes when the bottom falls out of the economy, "Old Money Folks" are still playing with their toys, the "New Money Folks" their toys are sitting in the bank parking lot for sale.
Yes we seen what happened the last time the stock market dropped, and and when the oil boom went bust, been there and done that, just my 2 cents worth, enjoy....
