I think so!

I have an american teacher  who values time as life, though he is very old now. I think it's because the tradition and the culture that foster this kind of American concept of time.

But just yesterday I learnt from my textbook that some Americans are also very lazy and living on the welfare system. So every society has some rebels and exceptions.

Depends on your location!

Hi.. I live in the south Central part of the US.  We tend to move pretty slow around here and enjoy our leisure time.  When I've visited the large cities in the US, like NY, Dallas, San Francisco.. etc, I noticed that everyone's lives did run in fast motion. I just figured that most large cities world wide ran the same way.. they all ran like "time was money".  But, if you ever visit the more southern parts of the US.. the smaller towns, you will find that people work when they need to work, but live and enjoy life in a slower motion when work is done.

generally agree!

I generally agree that Americans rush around in a hare! Shoot, if you were in debt up to your ears and your life is spent trying to maintain your stasis, then you run the rat race! I think you have to be clever to avoid this, because it is very difficult to have a simple life in the US! Work, work, work!
