Musings from the CU Suite

Your NAFCU Weekend Reading Pile

Compiled by Anthony Demangone, Powered by NAFCU

I know many of these articles focus on change. But I’m not sure the world is changing any faster now than it did in the past. It is just our change, so it seems like a lot to us. At the beginning of the 20th century, more than 40 percent of all Americans lived on a farm. Today, that is less than 1 percent.  Change is always happening. I think all we can do is to adapt the best we can.

Now, on to this week’s reading pile.
