Media NYT Style Section does it again
posted by January 13 at 12:19 PMon
This bizarre quote from this story on why women still buy with cash to hide their spending habits from their husbands:
…the age-old practice of women disguising personal indulgences by paying in cash persists even though the majority of women today earn a salary and, in an affluent age, families have more disposable income.
Which families are those?
True, a group of Americans are enjoying a new gilded age. But those who are not are more numerous than before. Even though the gap between the rich and poor gets covered in the main body of the Times, the style section still lives in a world of opulence for the masses.
