The Spanish are very much a language of wealth and wealth, and it’s been a long time since I’ve heard them speak. The way they talk to you like this is a direct consequence of their philosophy, and when I say “self-aware”, I mean that they’re not just ignorant.
The Spanish language is one of the most widely spoken languages on Earth. Even if you don’t speak it, you can still understand enough to read and write it, and more importantly to understand the value behind its use.
The Spanish have a very high standard of living, more so than the English. There’s a sense of entitlement to wealth that is not the same in any other western language. Because of this, I think theyre a little more conscious of their wealth than most people Ive met.
If youre in any doubt about the financial status of your family, I would strongly recommend reading the book “The Millionaire Next Door” written by John Kenneth Galbraith. This is the most comprehensive work on the subject that Ive read, and I can tell you that most American families have a million dollars or more, while the Spanish have about double that.
I think a lot of us have been so busy getting a decent standard of living that we forget were on autopilot. I mean, who doesnt want to be able to live a comfortable life, when maybe something is holding you back? Its the price of doing business and the price of being social, so we need to be conscious all the time.
I know that the average Spanish person does have a fairly high average income, as most of the money that goes into the Spanish economy comes from people that are already wealthy. But that doesn’t make it any less annoying. In fact, it makes it worse as those high-income people are already spending way more than the average person. So they’re spending more than they want, because they don’t have anywhere else to go.
Money is an incredibly important part of the human experience. It’s a very important part of our mental makeup, which is what drives us to spend more money than we want. If we are not consciously aware of it, our brains are not actually conscious enough to make any decisions about our spending. That means we aren’t actually paying attention to it.
In finance, there are some terms that are thrown around quite a bit, but that are usually not really used in the finance industry. These are called “financial assets and liabilities.” You may be familiar with the acronym FASB, which stands for “Federal Accounting Standards Board.” This is a group of government and accounting bodies that do a lot of work to ensure that government accounting is done correctly.
It’s actually a little complicated to explain in a short blog post, but here’s a quick primer on financial assets and liabilities.
Assets are things that money is made of. They include things like cash, bank accounts, stocks, bonds, real estate, and most other assets. Liabilities are things that money pays off and that can be used by the owner (for example, a mortgage) or someone else (for example, a loan).
