For Some (Think the 1%), Times are Very Good

High Rollers in a Buying Mood. (The New York Times, 1/1/2014)

What Matt Hlavin, president of Thogus Products Company, bought last year:
  1. Mercedes SLG AMG ($237,000)
  2. Mercedes S63 AMG ($165,000)
  3. Mercedes GL550 sport utility vehicle ($97,000)
Meet Lisa Lehman, Thogus's Director of Happiness.

Wonder what Lisa and the 170 or so other Thogus employees drive?
