The goal of this website is to educate low to middle income households ($10k-$75k) about Economics, with an emphasis on the Economy of The Home.
The Abbreviated Case for Taking An Interest In The Economy of The Home
Although subjective, I consider a high standard of living to be a life that consists of the following:
1. Good Food
2. Good Shelter
3. Good Clothing
4. Good Health/Hygiene
5. Good Friends and Family
Since there are 24 hours in a day and 7 days a week, that makes 168 hours in a week. Between sleep and general hygiene taking 9 hours a day, we're left with 105 hours of week for work and pleasure.
Here is the good news! The American worker labor output per hour has never been as high as it is today.
This rising productivity is coupled with fewer and fewer hours worked per week at ones job and has given us more time to be at home.
Herein lies the concept: We live in this 21st Century and have access to amazing technology and tools that help us be efficient and very productive. We have as much as 105 hours a week to do "WORK" to provide us with both a high standard of living and strong financial well being.
Hours we have at home, at our discretion, should not be wasted but taken advantage of to proactively rise the standard of ours and our family's living per the 6 things I believe consist of a high standard of living. This website aims to load you with ideas!
My goal here is to help you to learn how to become the best "home economics engineer" you can be to improve both the standard of living for yourself and your family as well as take steps to ensure your financial well being. This includes owning the right "ASSETS/TOOLS" and employing yourself to the most efficient manner.
