How to spend money
I was struck by how different this episode was from my experience. The big insight seemed to be, spend money and time on other people not yourself. What annoyed me was the chuckle chuckle attitude that while this is what the expert recommends this isn’t what he does. I believe him. Being a big shot professor at Harvard is a place you get only if you put yourself first. I say this as an academic myself. At the same time, there are many people who do put others first, who spend money on others, who may even forget what they liked or wanted because they spend so much time focused on others. Ask any parent of an ill or disabled child, or an immigrant who will never work in their chosen profession in order that their larger family can escape oppression. In other words, the social conventions professor norton projects onto the rest of us reflect his narrow privileged but uncaring class, not the American experience as a whole.

Love the podcast. Could you talk about addiction and some issues involved in that and codependency.
