As I have discussed previously…if you borrow cash, then it’s not income. This is why no one in his right mind borrows to buy consumer goods. Those who try cannot sustain it for long.

I have been writing about consumption of capital, using the example of a farmer who sells off his farm to buy groceries. It’s a striking story, because people don’t normally act like this. Of course, there are self-destructive people in...
