Aye, this is true, it’s not the gender that’s important.
I’ve often thought about the credit crunch 10 years ago, the causes, the players, the victims and the outcome.
From a gender perspective both male and female perhaps wanted the best even if they couldn’t afford it, the culture of buy now pay later was the order of the day.
The players were mostly male bankers I’m sad to say. Their driver was greed (bonuses), the more debt they could sell the better.
The victims were once again the initial cause, those that were led by a society that values ‘wealth’.
The fix - this is where it gets interesting.
Mostly governments adopted the word ‘austerity’. The governance of austerity generally falls to the female of the household, I know it’s a generality, I know it’s sexist, but imo that’s who has to control the household budget.
