BOSTON ( MainStreet) -- For many folks, they don't want to keep up with the Joneses -- they want to be the Joneses.There are a lot of forces that drive us deeper and deeper into debt. The need to flaunt affluence (whether or not you have it) is among them. There is also that green-eyed monster of envy -- warned about in both the 10 Commandments and Seven Deadly Sins -- driving us to up the ante for our homes, clothes and cars to look just that much better than the neighbors.
