12 Scientific Findings About The Filthy Rich & Wealthy
While most of us live paycheck-to-paycheck and dream of the day we can pay off our debts and comfortably afford our rent, there’s a mysterious class of super-wealthy people who own superyachts and private jets and look down on lesser millionaires. Who are these strange creatures? How did they get wealthy? Are they any happier than us? We looked to science for answers.
Maybe you have dreams of becoming one of them. Maybe you really like that Bruno Mars “Billionaire” song. Maybe you’re already planning your coin-filled pool. But we implore you to look closer at these financial dreams. Not being poor is definitely good for your health and mental happiness, but how rich is enough? During the pandemic, billionaires add $3.9 trillion to their finances while workers lost $3.7 trillion. Huh? Really makes you think that maybe hard work doesn’t make billions, but labor exploitation does. Maybe that’s just me, though.
