True that on the superficial level it would appear that the Amish maintain little use for the financial world. They are exempt from taxes and from most govtment regulated programs. Yet they take advantage of any opportunity to haggle with the commoners for goods. Its rather annoying and not a lifestyle to be taken lightly. Working the kids from morn til neigh and thinking its gods will.

The Amish community is extremely cloistered. They live just across the river from my town so I understand their respect for the land and the idea of a hard days work. They want nothing to change so any upheavel to the regulated lifestyle offsets there chosen plan. Its an extreme yet not an envied lifestyle to be brought into. Imagine not being able to have the freedom to choose your own music or clothing but rather be told what is okay to listen too or wear. Very communistic in that way. The positives are: Elders are still revereed and taken care of, High level of forgiveness, Believe in working for the family and god. Financially rich with land and not having taxation. No labor wages since they hire there family members  to help on the farms or business...Old fashion trades are still taught. Masonary, roofing, machinery repair, woodworking. These skills are mastered and rarely given the recognition they deserve !

The negative: No tv, outside media, radio , women are treated subserviant, education is limited to a narrow way of teaching. Medical care is limited to their religious beliefs...No immunization shots are to be given, no blood transfusions, no radiation treatment . Thats why we had 3mile island to spread that radiation to all...we didnt want to be bias!

     The authoir of those Rich Dad Poor Dad books, Richard T. Kityosaki, turned out to be very controversial. A lot of the  money he made came from multi-level marketing, not real estate. 

    Still good books though, but you have to take some of his info with a grain of salt.  

    Even still, his avice can be applied to any sector of business or investing.  Alos, there actually are some good MLM's out there.  Verizon and most of the major telecommunication firms out there are some of the biggest MLM's.

        Tis the root of all evil Mad Red Devil

      My best comparision about money would be a 1/2 wrench  to a auto repair shop...  Being that you have to have it in todays world,, but I would burn every dollar for a taste of money free livin such was the case lets say of American Indain days so to speak  Just think about a world without money  when surviving is enough  being able to live off the land feed/cloth/and house your family without worry of paying your electric billEek

       

       but since this so called civilzed world we live in exsists -(((AND IT WILL END SOMEDAY))-at least for the time being  the lottery is a go

        The problem with decreasing wages is that there would be a much greater gap between classes.  We are experiencing a big change in SW Florida.  The cost of living has risen so much that many of the "middle class" residents are moving out.  Teachers can't afford to live here on their salaries. Firefighters and police officers can't afford to live in the towns where they serve.

        I agree that inflation is bad, but people living on minimum wage can hardly survive.  A drop in the cost of living won't affect them as much as it will benefit the wealthy.

          Yes, he was the first person who came to mind.  Herbert Hoover was also a Quaker. 

          If I began listing all the Quakers like James Dean, Bonnie Raitt, Joan Baez, then I'd be cheating since I googled the words "famous Quakers" just now.  David Byrne is a Quaker.  I always liked like the Talking Heads.

              (sober response) Money is a TOOL which can be used for good or bad. Without money, the electric bill among other things doesn't get paid, and without electric you're going to have a hard time getting on here to post. This is 2007 and there's no way I could want to live like Amish or Amer. Indians etc. I'd get bored out of my skull!

                  Four Amish families just moved here from Wisconsin., and paid $1,200,000 for 783 acres.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    I do my best to keep my personal life out of the topics, but recent experiences have taught me that in today's world, we can't really give up what we used to think of as toys or luxuries without a major lifestyle change because they've become necessities.
