And as long as we are talking about financial stuff, this story in Bloomberg is showing us that there is a sea change in our culture: more people are prioritizing mobile phones, etc., than mobile cars:
“The sea change has taken place over the last few years as mobile devices become an integral tool not just for communication with loved ones or employers, but also everything from banking to dating to watching TV and listening to music. As cars grow relatively less important, borrowers struggling to pay back their loans on time are increasingly prioritizing payments on the latest iPhone instead of making sure they hold on to their pickup or coupe.”
That’s a pretty big change. The article does not indicate if this is a generational change or if all of us are doing it. The world has changed, and this must make Scott Pruitt’s real customers very nervous.
