Old Bjerg, Making Money. Design by Erik Carter. 
On the relationship between addiction and capitalism. The book focuses on gambling, drugs, and shopping, and this cover brushes up against all three. In person, especially, it’s a woozy experience. 

In a cash crunch? Here are quick ways to earn money you really needed yesterday. If you’re a homeowner struggling with your loan payments, you may want to learn about our home loan assistance programs. Late on rent? Can’t fill your car with gas to get to work? There are two ways to get ahead financially: Spend less or make more. Unfortunately, you can’t give yourself an instant raise or make long-term changes to your spending habits overnight. But that doesn’t mean you can’t turn a quick buck if you want or need to. The secret to making money isn’t working at a high-paying job, it’s finding creative solutions to people’s problems, and it doesn’t take a fancy degree to do that. To get your creative juices flowing, check out these common and not-so-common ways of lining your pockets. There’s almost no limit to the ways you can make money, but most of them require work (that particular balance is known as “the human condition”). However, there are ways to make extra cash without going too far out of your way…
