LOL

You still haven't mastered the art of clicking on the Reply link in the post you want to reply to? This reply of yours is actually a reply to yourself not to my post about why so few Americans want to pick fruit and vegetables.

That's due to my old school phone, not lack of know how...Sorry I don't have money for the latest and greatest technology...That's what happens when you're in the bottom 25%.

I suspect the people who came up with the 99%/1% split as a bit of demagoguery wanted to go after multimillionaires but found that trying to say 99.9%/0.1% (or whatever the correct proportion is; I figure I can't be too far off!) was just too cumbersome.

I personally had ONE year in the top 1% as the result of a windfall, never to be repeated; the tax bill alone was more than I had made any other year of my life. Counting that year and the year before it I've bounced all over that chart from then until now, including a year of being bottom 10%..

This is a crazy statistic:

78 percent of NFL players are bankrupt or facing serious financial stress within two years of ending their playing careers and that 60percent of NBA players are broke within five years of retiring from the game

Many people do not know how to handle large amounts of money prudently.  The same sort of thing happens to lottery winners as well.

There's some anecdotal evidence (see #4) that chronically poor people have a tendency to think of spending the money before it disappears.  (I've seen the behaviors described in the linked article personally as well.)

SO TRUE! Although I dare them to give me a chance I'll prove 'em wrong, LOL!!!

There was just an item on a national news broadcast which linked life expectancy to income.  The upper income levels have the highest life expectancies, probably, according to the item, due to the greater access to doctors and quality health care.

The disparity n income levels is widening, not narrowing.

And lower stress levels.
