The question I have after reading this article is, “Do we as a society want to live in an environment where charging 350% APR is even debatable as unethical?”

It is so wrong that things are so upside down, that we allow the poorest among us to be charged 350 percent…especially when the richest among us have access to vastly more sums at zero (or close) percent.

I don’t have an answer, just a deep sense of the wrongness of this dichotomy.

If you want to get ahead, you absolutely have to know where you are spending your money.  Develop a budget…and track your expenses.  You’ll then be able to gauge those costs month-to-month and year-to-year (provided you’re a numbers geeks and like to know such things).
