Money is a poor man's credit card

The quote "money is a poor man's credit card" comes from Marshall Mcluhan and fits perfect in out debt driven times.

Here are a few media that create a pretty good narrative perspective. First DJ Spooky remixed Mcluhan. Second one of his quotes speaking about professionalism and experts- btw, who runs the current world?- and some photos.
The last one, coming from Occupy, is particularly interesting. Up to you how you will rethink this mixed media.


"Professionalism merges the individual into patterns of total environment. Amateurism seeks the development of the total awareness of the individual and the critical awareness of the groundrules of society. The amateur can afford to lose. The professional tends to classify and specialise, to accept uncritically the groundrules of the environment. The groundrules provided by the mass response of his colleagues serve as a pervasive environment of which he is contentedly unaware. The 'expert' is the man who stays put."
- Marshall McLuhan
