The annihilation of the US' wealth has led to a tsunami of reassuring reports that money isn't that important after all. The latest effort to reassure the public comes from New York Life, whose money management division has begun sending investors a peppy newsletter called Living Now. The thrust is that investors should stop obsessing about money, and instead focus on personal happiness. It has been said that one should never fly in an airplane piloted by someone who believes in an afterlife. Similarly, one should never entrust one's nest egg to a money manager who believes that regular exercise and maintaining social relationships are more important than wealth.
