Austerity for the Middle and Lower Classes

Reduced wages
Increased hours of work
Diminishing benefits
Loss of pensions
Increased taxation
Restricted access to loans/capital
Increased household expenses
Diet and quality of food diminishes
Vacation in your backyard
Wine is replaced by grape-juice
Lost membership at Health Club

Austerity for the Rich

Contemplation of increased taxes
How much can fraternity get away with
All the money you can borrow at 0%
Buy the most expense toys at fire sale prices
Trip around the world
Caviar and Pate from China
Post-1945 wine vintages only
Decrease in Masonic Lodge dues

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
