BEFORE THE CRASH: Here’s What It Was Like When It Seemed Like Virtually Everyone Felt Rich

Looking back on it now, the years leading up to the Lehman collapse seem like a fever dream. 

This was the era when:

— Your friend who had majored in English went to work for an investment bank.

— Your parents thought it would be a good idea to buy a second (or third!) home upstate.

— “My Super Sweet 16” came into existence.

We wanted to go back to see just how absurd this moment was.

So we’ve scoured American (and a slice of global) culture and society from 2003 to 2008 to find the most absurd examples and reflections of financial excess.

In retrospect, it is now ludicrously clear that we should’ve seen it all coming…

FOTOS QUE DEMUESTRAN POR QUE SINGAPUR AIRLINES ES LA MEJOR LINEA AEREA DEL MUNDO

 

16 Photos That Show Why Singapore Has The World’s Best Airline

Singapore Airlines took the top spot on our list of the Best Airlines In The World. 

The list ranked the best major international airlines for flying economy class, based on two categories: the quality of the in-flight experience and the on-time delays.

Last year, I flew economy class from New York City to Singapore (with a stop in Frankfurt) on Singapore Airlines, and saw for myself why the airline gets rave reviews.

What really helps the airline stand apart is not the seats or the food or even the entertainment (though it has all that), but the service. People who work for the airline are trained to treat passengers with respect and care — something that’s increasingly unusual these days.

We thought the day-long trip to Singapore would be unbearable. But even in economy class, it was surprisingly pleasant.

Disclosure: Our trip to Singapore, including travel and lodging expenses, was sponsored by the Singapore Tourism Board.

Spain is currently in flux as social, territorial, and political tensions force the monarchy to overhaul institutions and address corruption. Consequently, approval for the royal family has dropped near its lowest standing ever.

Here is the economy that Felipe VI is inheriting:
