“Debt is the most insidious of civic plagues, far more so than even excessive taxing and extreme spending. That’s because debt is less obvious and more abstract. Spend a dollar, and you know it’s gone. Tax a dollar, and you’re aware it’s taken. Go in debt for a dollar, and it’s out of sight, out of mind… “The wicked borrows and does not pay back,” wrote the psalmist.”


To which I add: what can’t go on forever, won’t. Have you thought about what happens when the music stops?
