How To Live

Art Carden has one of his funny/serious pieces which ostensibly deals with parenting (but which leads to deeper economic thinking). I like his rules for parenting, but I can see them in a more generalized form as aids for living. My suggested modified version:

  1. There is no right way to live.
  2. The ratio of snake oil to legitimate information is really, really high.
  3. Being a responsible adult is just flat-out hard but well worth the struggle.
There are other things that need to be known, but these will take you a long way.
