Loan Shark

I know two brothers who are both lower middle class (poor). One thinks life is great because he manages his little money well. The other is constantly borrowing money and can barely get by because he does not manage his money well.  Sometimes the problem is drugs and alocohal.  Sometimes the problem is impulsive shopping.  In any event one can live a good, solid life life on a small amount of money without borrowing money if one can manage their "wants."
