  •  Wealth loses relevance at some point... (0+ / 0-)

    A million dollars means nothing to me, because
    I have never nor will ever have anything like it.

    As an undergraduate in 1973 my father said $15
    was a sufficient weekly allowance ($77.25 now).

    I was stuck with that "$15" by '77 graduation ~
    when inflation had reduced it to $56.85 per now.

    100, 200, 300 millions, 1 or 2 or 3 billions mean
    nothing to me... but I'm the guy you want if it's
    real dollar value regarding everyday living life...

    My only faith in the "economy" is Momentum ~
    people working and raising families in real time.

    Shove your millions, fat cats. You have no souls.
