Irish philosopher Francis Hutcheson suggested, “That action is best which procures the greatest happiness.” In what time frame, though? Short term? Long term?

ARIES (March 21-April 19). The faster you react the less you think. Marketers will try to use this to their advantage, imposing a ticking clock on the interaction. Walk away from those “limited time” offers today.
