It’s the paradox of finance:

You need debt to gain credit

Yet to save is the advice –

And owing too much money

Can be seen as a vice.

If you spend freely you’re a spendthrift –

A miser if you save

Because the economy needs you

That’s what they say.

Economics – it seems a subject quite deep

Yet you seem an airhead or shallow

If conspicuous shopping

Is all that you seek
