Would you lend your parents or other family money?

I listened to this podcast from the lens of someone who understands what it feels like having nothing . Due to job loss and feeling so powerless to even ask
To be in situation were you cannot put food on the table , afford a bus journey, and on medication as result of mental exhaustion .
What you don’t get is how it feels receiving from a family member, knowing your indent for god knows how long. Feeling worthless each time your left to ask. There so much I would like to say about this side of the equation
Maybe you need to know feel what it’s like because to be frank it’s soul destroying and even as I write this I feel intense shame and worthlessness
Trying feeling powerlessness maybe you get it then

Interesting but dangerous

I’d be an FT reader if I could afford the subscription, so interesting to find a freebie FT podcast. Just listened to my first one, and 3 subjects, one dealt with well, one a bit dubious (excess industry lobbying) and the final rant (coal burning) quite ludicrous with the implied statistics (fortunately I could hit STOP). Perhaps thats the point; listen with your brain alert, not just on the train, in the car, whatever.
