Scrooge is all about trumpeting old fashioned values like saving, being prudent, doing things for others.
Boring stuff I hear you say. Sure is, but that’s life for you.
Americans, Canadians, Australians, Irish, New Zealanders like to spend and spend. They like to spend rather than save.
Scrooge would like you to lock away those credit cards.
For a US economy teetering on the edge of a recession, with the greenback tanking, and the smart money moving to China and elsewhere in Asia, there is only one thing to do. Save don’t spend. And if your folks think of you as skinflinted, blame it on Scrooge. He can take it.
