Rick Steves Knows What's Up

He's that "off the beaten path" nerdy European travel guy that your parents probably watch on PBS, and he's apparently really smart.

"A headline today said, "Americans lose 18 percent of their wealth." Well, no, it wasn't real wealth, it was a bubble. You're down 18 percent? You're not. It shouldn't have been up there in the first place. So get over it. Shut up. Go to work, produce stuff that has value. I really think the days are gone, I hope, when people can rearrange the furniture and get rich on it. You got to produce something."
