  •  I would also note that these sad people (8+ / 0-)

    would have to have at least $1.2 million free cash invested at 4.5% to have the investment income they are citing. If you assume 7% (and no one I know is averaging that) you still have to have about 3/4 of a million invested.

    Yup, sad, sad people.

    There is no environmental, social, economic or resource problem that wouldn't be helped by 3 billion fwer people on the planet.

      The married couple with $180K investment income is either at $3.6M @ 5% or the $180K is carried interest, so they make $470K earned income and $180K carried interest.  While they fuck over the people who actually worked to make them that money and averaged $52K per year.  

      No tears here.
