The Very Rich are not Spending Their Money on Job Creation, Suckers

If the Very Rich Were Like Wine, 2013 Was a Heady Vintage.  (The New York Times, 3/4/2014)

What you can't afford:
  • Rare 1957 Ferrari ($27,500,000)
  • Francis Bacon's "Three Studies of Lucien Freud" ($142,400,000)
  • 12 bottles of Domain de la Romanee-Conti ("as close to perfect as wine gets")

He actually said this: "You don't have to be seriously rich to get into this..." (Video from 2010.)
