Submission + - Why speaking English can make you poor when you retire (bbc.co.uk)

dhaen writes: "BBC Business News reports that speaking English can significantly affect your savings philosophy. It seems that languages with strong future time reference (such as English) detach us from the future, thus making us care less about it. Languages with a weak future time reference (such as Mandarin) treat the present and future as being much more closely related, making people more likely to care and this save for it. The article goes further to suggest the degree we care about the future is language related."
