Remember M. Todd Henderson, who was barely scraping by with his family income reported to be somewhere in the neighborhood of $400,000? He apparently is still clinging tightly to his privilege. Here’s a quote from a Bloomberg article about how the super rich are barely managing:
M. Todd Henderson, a University of Chicago law professor who’s teaching a seminar on executive compensation, said the suffering is relative and real. He wrote two years ago that his family was “just getting by” on more than $250,000 a year, setting off what he called a firestorm of criticism.
“Yes, terminal diseases are worse than getting the flu,” he said. “But you suffer when you get the flu.”
My second favorite quote from this article: “People who don’t have money don’t understand the stress.”
