VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
Not saying there's a connection, but suspect there is...but No. 1 is located "not too far" out of our Nation's Cap...
NOT saying it's related to current, as it's related to ALL GOV'T officials, but interesting that so many mega rich live so close to DC...
Is it people connected, clearly they have influence, or attempt to have influence. Scary.
What I find amusing is the fact that a person living below 'poverty level' in Mississippi is in far better shape economically than a person with a 50k income in NYC.
The one size fits all numbers used by demographers abjectly fail to convey true standards of living. A person in central Alabama with a 30k per year income will have a 3 bedroom/2 bath brick home on ten acres, while that same income in san fransisco will struggle to pay rent on a one bedroom apt. Yet the demographers pretend the deep South is poor. even though they live much better on average than the rest of the nation. It would be amusing if it didn't involve my tax dollars
I'm quite sure the general working public is so damn interested in how and where the rich live
we just keep getting slapped in the face by the rich..
I never read or hear about this little Podunk hillbilly town stuck in the foothills of south Carolina where people barely get by and walmart keeps raising their prices while all the time trying to convince us that they sell for less .. yup I'm sure we really give a crap about the rich and where they live
I'm seeing a lot of griping about the criteria used for this slideshow, but businesses that cater to the wealthy need to either be near that wealth, or near a destination that attracts it, which in turn implies local wealth. Yacht clubs, private jets, high-end jewelry, luxury cars- these are all things we as a society associate with wealth.
It's interesting that only one of these towns was not in California or sucking the government teat. Unless there's a government facility in or near Brentwood, TN that I'm unaware of.
