You seriously paid for an education? Ask for a refund on your loans, like yesterday. No offense, but reality is reality. You got ripped off.

There are a certain number of people who have made it big who have left London, Paris, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Honolulu, Sydney, Milan, Monaco, Singapore, Madrid, Istanbul, Dallas, Houston, Hong Kong. But let's be honest, no other city except for London attracts as many super rich as NYC.

The number of NYers who earn over $1mm per year doubled from 2001-2011.

In 2001, 11,700 New Yorkers reported earning more than $1 million annually, according to summaries of resident tax returns provided by the mayor’s office. A decade later, 20,416 did.

NYC will never have to worry about wealthy people, because it has the most of it and it will always be that way.

The problem is the middle class..but in the case of the middle class, the people who leave NYC are replaced by higher earning middle class group:

Quote:
According to the Census Bureau’s latest American Community Survey, the average household income of those who left New York was $44,739. The average for those who came was $55,419 — the largest differential in at least five years.

If you can't afford to live in NYC, move. I'm not being sarcastic. NYC is one of, if not the most expensive cities in the country. It can be a very tough place to make it, especially if you don't have specialized skills that are in demand here. The flip side is that no one has an economic right to live here. If you can't cut it here, move on

Move someplace else where you can find a job that will pay your enough to live better. There's a big, Big, BIG country out there, and most of it is a lot cheaper than NYC.

Then there's no reason for people to worry about de Blasio being elected. I doubt the super rich are all that concerned.

Yup...sounds right up the alley of Union inflated salaries. The Union motto: "Get paid MORE to do LESS".

I fixed the end of your quote for you.

Enjoy the crime and degredation. NYC will be the new Chicago and Detroit!
