On MPRNewsQ, MinnEcon asks:
We know we're not supposed to talk about money, politics or religion with friends. The subjects can create some awkward and unpleasant moments if you and your pals aren't on the same page.
When it comes to money, though, the recession may be forcing our hand.
You know your buddy's unemployed. You're out for dinner and you know he really can't afford it. But he doesn't want anyone feeling sorry for him. Make a big deal about trying to pay and you may make him feel worse.
So how's it done? How do you navigate that tricky terrain?
