Once a month I tackle the vexing questions of financial etiquette in a feature I now like to call “Cents and Sensibility” (mostly because the old name, “Money Manners,” was taken). This month’s installment is ripped from the London headlines, where one fellow foolishly ignored what the Bard of Avon’s advice would have been, had the Elizabethans invented the iPhone.

Although, even if Steve Jobs had been around in the 1500s, we all know the credit would still go to Francis Bacon.
