Cheap. It's a dirty word laden with negative meanings. It is also the story of Lauren Weber's life. As a child, she resented her father for keeping the heat at 50 degrees through the frigid winters and rarely using his car's turn signals - to keep them from burning out. But as an adult, she found herself walking 30 blocks to save $2 on subway fare. In Cheap We Trust teases out the meanings of cheapness and examines the wisdom and pleasures of not spending every last penny.
"Trust in Cheap"
"Uber Reaches a Tipping Point With Its Drivers" is from the April 24, 2016 Tech section of The Wall Street Journal. It was written by Rachel Emma Silverman and Lauren Weber and narrated by Alexander Quincy.
