There are moments in life that I feel so blessed to be able to survive on my Social Security pension. There are moments in which I feel humble and happy knowing that my income is so much better than those who have the misfortune to work on Wall Street. Few Americans understand how this body of men–and a few woman, and when I say, “few” it really is a few–work day and night to earn enough to feed their families each day of the week. Institutional Alpha magazine published a story which depicts the life and times of this brave group of hedge fund managers. “How bad was 2014? The 25 hedge fund managers on our annual rich list made a paltry $11.62 billion which was barely half of the $21 billion gained he previous year and roughly equal to what they took home during the nightmarish 2008.”
God, how can these men survive on such income? I am organizing a new Charity:
THE HEDGE FUND MANAGER SURVIVAL CHARITY. Please donate your income in order that this group of men can come home with the bacon for tonight’s meal!
P.S. I trust ministers, priests and rabbis will understand why these men simply can not contribute to their religion.
