  •  It was easier in the 1960's (0+ / 0-)

    Abbie Hoffman once said "the '60s are never coming back because you could live on $100 a month back then" - which made it a hell of a lot easier to "be happy without constant work."

    I shared a small 4-bedroom house with friends my first year out of college (1971); my share of the rent was $75. (This was in Brooklyn, NYC, not way out in the boonies somewhere.) I don't think anyone in any large city is going to be able to find a place to live for $75 a month anymore.

    You can't stop progress (or is that "profit"?)
