Stevieslaw: Greed—the gift that keeps giving
The Brookings Institute reports that for men born in 1920, there was a six year difference in life expectancy between the top 10 percent of earners and the bottom ten percent of earners. For men born in 1950, that difference has doubled to 14 years. Women fare about the same—4.7 years to 13 years.
Here at Stevieslaw, we have new projections that strongly suggest that members of the top 1% of earners will live on average for 186 years, while the poorest 1% will die out by age 27. The projection for women is even worse, as it factors in the decision by the legislators and governors of the Red States to strictly limit health care for women to just the day they give birth.
Smokey Diamond, our intrepid reporter, sees even more serious worries on the horizon. “With the current projections,” she hissed, “It appears entirely possible for Donald Trump to continue his quest for the Presidency for the next 120 years or so.” “That’s 30 election cycles.” “Factoring that into the calculations of the life expectancy for everyone else will not be easy,” she acknowledged. “But the loss of any measurable “will to live” among the 99.9% is sure to drag these numbers into the single digits.”
