Consumption burns wealth. I am not poor thanks to restraint and intend to get richer by reducing consumption even more.

Those who are poor and can't get loans are inhibited to consume a lot through lack of wealth, but that does not mean they are the same.

You cannot treat all kinds of consumption like they are one and the same either.
I'm paying off the mortgage on my house. Once that's done and I'm confident I can pay my kids education no matter what, I may start consuming more works of art or other forms of intellectual property.
So much more satisfying than consuming fuel.

2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
"In hindsight, I should have placed a bet on the horse that won the race"
"In hindsight, I should have bet more on that horse"
