(taken from the film I Heart Huckabees)

Clothes, videos, toys, cheeseburgers, cars, a functioning economy.

You can still have a functioning economy and preserve open spaces with a little planning. Yeah.

Socialism. Complete disaster.

Theodore Roosevelt was a socialist? And Yeats? Theodore Roosevelt...

Henry David Thoreau, Robinson Jeffers, the National Geographic Society, all socialists?

You're talking about socialism. No, I'm not. I'm talking about not covering every square inch of populated America with houses and strip malls until you can't even remember what happens when you stand in a meadow at dusk.

What happens in the meadow at dusk?

Nothing (Everything)
Nothing (Everything)
Nothing (Everything)

    General CommentEven songs plague for economy. The personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2009/12/25/credit-key-managing-mortgage-car-installment-loans/">lending industry is desperate to get revenue flowing back in, and everyone is wondering how long it will take until they recover. Granted, no one cries for a credit card company, but that being said, the credit rating agency TransUnion is one of the many firms working on analyzing economic data to figure out what current trends will tell us about the future, and the consensus is that the rate at which damage is occurring will slow, but — surprise! — the biggest road block to getting mortgage, auto, or other installment loans lenders in healthy shape again is unemployment.
