Acting Dead, Trading Up and Leaving the Middle Class

” Acting Dead, Trading Up and Leaving the Middle Class. The idea is that you’re wasting your life doing anything that your dead great grandfather, in the grave, can do better than you. You’re using fewer resources? Your great grandfather is using no resources, and if he could talk to you, he might say, “Stop doing stuff that a dead person can do. You’re alive — do something that an alive person can do.”
