The Financial Times

Compared to most people in the western world, here are five types of people who are so far almost unaffected by the credit crunch:

1. Self-sufficient smallholders

2. People with rich relatives or inherited wealth

3. People with secure jobs

4. People with final salary pension schemes

5. Lottery winners

None of those apply to me.

Compared to most people in the western world, I am so far almost unaffected by the credit crunch.

Yes. I'm up now, but it's a rolla-coasta

I'm affected because people keep talking about it.

My mum always said "ignore it and it will go away". I think she was talking about unwanted male attention but I think it can be a strategy employed for anything annoying.

RnB - that's because you're rich.
Ann - your logic does not apply to most of us who are constantly seeking attention of the opposite gender
