I had never truly understood the meaning of “time is money” until this reading. Maybe, though, it is just another interpretation or aspect of “time is money.” Maybe it’s more, money is time. The more money you have, the more access you have to things that “save” time. I appreciated the illustration of the differences in transportation: plane is faster than car, and car is faster than bus. Money also allows people to “spend” their time differently. A wealthy parent may have a maid to clean, while a working mother with young children would not have that luxury, forcing them to spend that time cleaning and cooking, instead of resting or purely having time with their children. Someone with excess money would have the ability to buy groceries without having to spend the time scouting for the grocery store with the cheapest prices, finding the cheapest brands, dealing with coupons, calculation price per ounce, etc. However, people with a low budget have to spend that time and often have to sacrifice time and health to buy enough affordable food. Additionally, someone with a higher paying job is usually allowed more flexibility with their work schedule than someone with a lower-paying, physical labor job. There’s not necessarily a logical reason for this. This is very common throughout the US, though. Restaurant workers are required to schedule their lives around their work schedule, made each week by their boss. However, an accountant may be required to work a certain number of hours a week but has the power to change their scheduled hours to how they want them or how they best fit with their personal life.
