Capitalism Can Seem Strange

Buying a pair of shoes, or a purse, or a fancy sports car, is much more fun than paying an electricity bill, or paying rent, although human nature being what it is—people who complain about electricity bills don't hesitate to go out and spend $300 on a pair of blue jeans that look like they came from the dumpster. And it's just very strange. But each gets something from the transaction.
