SEN­SI­BLE SHOP­PING

DRUM - - Ed's Note -

I un­der­stand that banks ex­ist to make profit, but I feel our peo­ple are be­com­ing slaves to the banks.

We have seen a mas­sive in­crease in car sales be­cause loans are ap­proved by banks. It’s high time gov­ern­ment in­ter­venes and im­ple­ments new laws to pre­vent peo­ple from buy­ing cars if their in­come isn’t great.

Yes, hav­ing a car will im­prove your life in some ar­eas but it should go with af­ford­abil­ity, which banks do not seem to fo­cus on.

Peo­ple must learn to buy things they can af­ford, not just things they want. ME­SHACK MATHE, IVORY PARK
