I don't care where the rich live. Incidentally, Chinese billionaires are the direct result of US manufacturers shipping their factories to China, DOH! And I do not hate millionaires AND billionaires. I happen to have a healthy respect for the late Steve Jobs, and for Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, as I did for Lear and many others. I just don't appreciate rich bastards who send their money offshore, legally or not but unpatriotically let the poor sucker middle class take up the slack.<quoted text>
Ah, do you know how many common people won stocks? Have stocks in their retirement plans?
Ah, no that China is booming, they have BILLIONAIRES too!
Now, do you want to guess how many millionaires there are in those countries?
The countries with the most rich people, have higher standards of living! I bet that frosts you butt, doesn't it Jacques!!!
Common people don't own stock, Rogue, don't kid yourself. Yes, they indirectly own stock in mutual funds where they don't decide on where their money is invested. Hey, do you know anyone who ever struck it rich owning mutual funds or whose pension money was invested in the market? The opposite, Rogue, the opposite. Your pension is govt-administrated. That is why it's still coming in every month. Imagine if you had worked for Enron or all those GWB- 2008 bankrupted companies.
