The Pandemic Didn't Hurt Everyone


Recommended Posts

Between March of 2020 and March of 2021, 43 more Americans became Billionaires and the combined wealth of existing Billionaires increased by almost 45%. 

As they say, there are always winners and losers in everything.

As a side note, I also read that the average net worth of 50% of Americans is $39,000. 

Not a typo. That's Thirty nine thousand dollars. 

That's disturbing.  Most live paycheck to paycheck with no savings. Fancy phones, cars, and TV. Not to mention eating out almost every night.

Good for those 43 new billionaires!  I love capitalism. Some of those people will buy a ranch in Montana or a Rocky Mountain state and hire us to build them a beautiful pond. They hire others to build them a beautiful lodge. And they’ll hire landscapers and pour money into that local economy, spreading that wealth to others. Regardless of how the lefties feel about wealth (unless they have their own in which case, nothing to see here), the wealthy spread that wealth out by spending some of it.

Yes, some will trickle down. That's the way it's supposed to work. But you could not spend ALL of the money some have in 10 lifetimes.

Agree.  When a billionaire earns a $, it doesn't come from someone else.  It's not a zero-sum game.  That's not how economics work.

Unless you are Warren Buffet. I think he still lives in his little ranch house in Omaha, Nebraska. LOL
