"Recession Culture": Maybe having no money is a good thing

There's an interesting article in New York magazine about so-called "recession culture," which explores the notion that being broke and jobless changes everything — in some cases for the good.

Because the article is in an egghead East Coast magazine, it's loooooong and full of big words. Which is way too much for me to take this morning. But I plan on revisiting the piece over my evening snifter of port. Yes yes.

If you're prone to drooling and just want the gist of the article without exerting much energy, watch an interview with the author here.
