You gotta love the contradictory arguments that we’re served up all the time: “Wasteful spending is a sign of American exceptionalism that would be wiped out by socialist policies!” and “If only people would stop wasting money on things like fast food or haircuts, they could save money like responsible capitalists!”

Down that thread Popehat weighs in on who came up with that. He was answered it was a study commissioned by a life insurance company which used skewed data (heavily weighted toward wealthy people).
