I bought a new car last week. It was not an exciting thing for me because I don’t like to make big purchases. But unfortunately, out of necessity, I had to. It seemed like I was signing one page after another in order to make the deal final. I started thinking about how our forefathers used to seal deals with nothing more than a handshake. Somehow that was all that was needed. I wondered how many trees could be saved if business was run that way again. It seems like just about everything we do requires a trail of paperwork nowadays.I think that says a lot about our society in general.
