Do you think people will become more fiscally responsible after all this?

Recommended Posts

Im not expecting a life financial overhaul...but people spending less on material goods and maybe setting up an actual safety net...or back to paycheck to paycheck?  There are alot of people who live paycheck to paycheck but they dont have to...they just spend it as fast as they make it...

I don't expect a change. Some people are just dumb. Others are just impulsive. Then there are those that can't do much about their financial situation. This virus is going make it worse even for those that would want to make a change. But won't be able to.

People are poor because they are dumb. So no, they won't be more responsible, they'll expect more handouts and democrats will tell them they deserve it.

That goes for irresponsible individuals and corporations.

Depends on how long this lasts and how low we go. After the Depression, there was a whole generation of people who were frugal. 

With our disposable society, I highly doubt it will change enough to even be noticeable this time around.

Not only is the answer no, but history unfortunately has shown that people who truly are fiscally responsible can be branded as hoarders and greedy and pressured into giving up their resources for others.

Exactly. We’re on Week 2 of a pandemic and Wall Street needs $500b to stay afloat. Too much avocado toast and iPhones?

Yeah those billionaires shouldn't have to give an extra dime. Screw poor people. They should all go get better jobs.

I think, like everything else, people will change at first... then eventually fall into their old ways.

No. 

The nation has become conditioned to expect bail outs and hand outs.  Look at what's going on right now.  Just add all this onto our already insurmountable deficit.
