Re: To be 1% in Canada is to make $201,000

I'm making as much now as it took my dad to make in 25 years at his job.

By the way, one thing I liked about this article was that it demonstrated that the Liberals aren't really championing for the little guy and all that jazz. They're the moderate right and don't swing too far left of the Cons.

Another interesting tidbit.. With the median income in the $28,000 dollar range, one would have to work for 15-20 years without eating, needing clothes, paying rent, paying utilities or paying taxes for that matter, in order to make enough money to buy a house in a major metropolitan area.

while i don't live in the GTA, i lived on less than that here for many years...rent, food, car/gas/insurance, child support...no, i didn't eat caviar and live in a McMansion, but i managed ok...when better opportunities presented themselves, i improved my circumstances.

That is called inflation.

A "basket" of goods and services that cost: $100 in 1965
...would cost: $708.77 in 2012

I frequently make more in 1 day in the stock market now than I made in a whole year when I started out after college in the 70's.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasury.
