With economics we tend to think in terms of quantity and cash flow; when revenues are high we smile. Recent events have shown that the bottom line can be deceiving. With certain large companies and agencies failing due to poor business practices, it might be that we need to look at another kind of currency.
Whatever amount of money is in the bank, one needs an equal amount of currency called character; as in someone of good reputation. Responsible behavior with money is key to the viability of a family, business or one’s own life. We all could do better. Having too much money or too little can lead us to unsavory practices which hurts everyone.
