“Modern” economics seems to mostly regard savings as bad and spending as good. Issues I have with this. 1) People do not save indefinitely, they are merely buffering their cache to smooth out bad times or to concentrate the results of their labors on some major good. 2) You can only save money if you are earning it and therefor doing something of substantive value, and thus increasing general wealth. 3) People who save are spending on more useful and or valued items, helping to focus labor on the most valued commodities, and preventing waste.
