Is It Stupid to Save? 5 Alternatives

I find it amusing when articles give financial advice without any context. No that I’m a financial guru. But at least I’d stratified my advice into some tiers:
dirt poor — you should be focusing on burn rate and “months of cushion”
poor — you should be focused on pyramid and how you establish a basis going forward
young family man — should be thinking insurance and home ownership
youngsters — save your nickels and develop 10 part time jobs
… … before you start worrying about savings rates!!!
