Thread: Half of the Country Doing Well

  1. #1

    Thumbs up Half of the Country Doing Well

    Good economic news for Trump's reelection prospects! Half of the country has as much wealth today as they did in 2003. There are a few of you who I hope are in that good half.

    The decadelong economic expansion has showered the U.S. with staggering new wealth driven by a booming stock market and rising house prices.

    But that windfall has passed by many Americans. The bottom half of all U.S. households, as measured by wealth, have only recently regained the wealth lost in the 2007-2009 recession and still have 32% less wealth, adjusted for inflation, than in 2003, according to recent Federal Reserve figures. The top 1% of households have more than twice as much as they did in 2003.

    More...
    The colors of the world
    Are changing day by day.
    Red, the blood of angry men!
    Black, the dark of ages past!
    Red, a world about to dawn!
    Black, the night that ends at last!

    My net worth since 2003 is conservatively 20x.

    Edit to provide clarity

    *I said literally instead of conservatively. It's likely more than 20x, but I'm only looking at assets I had in 2003, and not other tangible things I have today like a nearly paid off home, two paid off cars, no debt.

    It'd be almost impossible to be in worse financial shape than I was back then. 3rd year of college, no job, etc.

    A quick thank you note to President Trump would heal your wounds.

    Roughly 60% of Americans don't have $1000 in cash to cover an emergency:

    https://www.cnbc.com/2019/01/23/most...emergency.html

    To blame this on the current administration - or even past administrations would be missing the bigger picture. I see a lot of political banter everywhere without a lot of emphasis on personal responsibility.

    Here's a rebuttal:

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/timwors.../#7592692a9019

    The author argues that having access to $1000 in the form of credit is essentially the same thing as having a $1000 cash emergency savings fund. The fact that this was printed in Forbes is also indicative of the overall state of affairs in this country.

    its hilarious to see politician after politician get up and say blah blah blah no one has money, blah blah blah such and such does not have access to education.

    I don't see a single one get up there and say look......there is a large percentage of unemployed people that no matter who is in office, and what policy is......will be a worthless fuck, will not work, will try to collect free money from government, etc etc.

    would be refreshing.

    Fast forward to Trump, and now there are 2.
