autolycus BS: How do you decide you can afford it? (48) BS: How do you decide you can afford it? 19 Mar 12


People say, "I can't afford ...." [or "I haven't got any money."

Governments, councils, companies say they can't pay for .....; or that they are spending only £xx for a,b and c.

People will say they can't afford £6 for a book and then spend £200,000 on a house.

A government says "We haven't got any money for roads"/ "...can spend £3 billion".

1. How do you decide you can afford or not afford something?



Allied to that, people say "I haven't got any money?"

I think different people mean different amounts by those same words.

2. When you say, "I haven't got any money", what do you mean in cash terms?
