Pale gazes upon the bubble that is the world of those who created today's current financial mess and chokes.
Yes, the New York Times has given us a rough breakdown of the expenses of the Ivy League class of '96. How will they survive on the $500,000 annually prescribed by President Obama?
Well, without some retraining, they won't. They don't know how. Give up the nanny, the chauffeur, the house in the Hamptons? How?!
Perhaps it's time to point out that there are people out there who have different advice than Candace Bushnell. After all, it's not the New York it used to be.
Bring on Gail Vaz-Oxlade and her famous cash jars!
Hey! Lots of people are doing it. Doesn't look like much fun, does it? Except that it works, unlike the mutated financial sewage New Yorks bankers were peddling as "investments".
Now, most of us would just buy Gail's book and a few Mason jars; something which might come to about Canadian $35. However, if that doesn't meet the elevated tastes of CEOs who now find themselves on an allowance of mere presidential proportions, they can always buy custom-made jars on an attractive polymer base for US $59.
Update: Polly, in comments, points out that Gail Vaz-Oxlade has a blog and, (as Polly points out), Gail is a hoot. Go take a look.
