Welcome to America’s Favorite Thrift Store!  © Matt Niebuhr

An interesting quote to consider from Smith’s The Wealth of Nations: “It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities but of their advantages.”

Assuming that you might qualify, how will you choose to put your economic stimulus payment to good work?

UPDATE:

Brian Ulrich has been doing a series on the theme for some time… above and this variation below is my take on it….
