I’m rereading this Michael Lewis book and noticed this good quote.

“When you borrow a lot of money to create a false prosperity, you import the future into the present,” he writes. “It isn’t the actual future so much as some grotesque silicone version of it. Leverage buys you a glimpse of a prosperity you haven’t really earned.”
