In 2009, households headed by adults younger than 35 had 68% less wealth than households of their same-aged counterparts had in 1984."

mircea_popescu: obviously, 1% richest would be the strato-rich, sure, ok.

mircea_popescu: the only ones with something still to sell.
mircea_popescu: why aren't they ? why some pruny old dude ?

asciilifeform: yes, a handful of thugs end up with the lion's share
decimation: which means you need to have a house bought before 1980 and be older than 65
decimation: asciilifeform: yeah except if you read my initial link, old people have 47x more wealth than <35
asciilifeform: aha
decimation: it's not mysterious who this '1%' are
decimation: I suppose my hypothesis is that if assets were demoninated in actual hard currency they wouldn't be able to run this kind of ponzi
asciilifeform: see where the 47x figure will go if you discount houses.
asciilifeform: (or if anything like most of'em tried to cash in)
decimation: yeah home equity is most of it
decimation: but home equity comes from bank debt, which comes from the combination of how much maturity transformation is allowed and how much money the fed prints..
asciilifeform: real estate 'wealth' is the ultimate bezzle, nothing like 400,000 time the N of houses in $sector is even available as 'turkey-buying dollars'
asciilifeform: let's work a gedankenexperiment:
asciilifeform: say my neighbour, 86-year-old mr schmuckson, sells his house
asciilifeform: he now has 400k
asciilifeform: what can he do with it?
decimation: well, to go to mircea's point, he can't buy 30 year old health
asciilifeform: he can... die? then the 400k becomes 0, it pays off mr schmuckson jr.'s college loans
asciilifeform: and car loans
asciilifeform: say he isn't ready to die yet
asciilifeform: he can buy... stocks ?
asciilifeform: same result
decimation: let's be more reasonable and say he's 65
asciilifeform: what he is actually going to buy, in likelihood, is a few years of nursing home.
decimation: he could buy yacht
asciilifeform: (automagically costs $networth in most states)
decimation: yes that's likely
asciilifeform: poof. bezzle - gone.
asciilifeform: it went to the same place the electric current in the neutral phase of your mains socket goes.
asciilifeform: a minus sign.
decimation: asciilifeform: I made this point awhile ago about 'roth' ira accounts
asciilifeform: it 'returns to dust' because 'from dust it came'
asciilifeform: as it must.
decimation: they are better in the sense that usg promises not to charge further tax
asciilifeform: picture if the whole idiocy asylum of mr. schmucksons tried to cash in their 400k each and buy turkeys
asciilifeform: or even rockets for isis
decimation: you can even give to schmuckson jr - but as soon as he gets his hands on it the clock starts
decimation: minimum distributions must be made
asciilifeform: it'll go straight to his creditors
asciilifeform: what's left, will buy him a house
asciilifeform: to play the cycle again
gernika: Not much of it would make it to schmuckson jr after gift tax
decimation: no my point is that usg demands jr drains the account
decimation: why put that provision in the law at all?
asciilifeform: decimation: so the current can return to the earth
decimation: unless you were intentionally ensuring that 'schmucksons' couldn't become wealthy enough to tell usg to fuck off...
decimation: but to connect with your point, clearly as long as you are wholly owned by usg, doing business in its monopoly money, don't be surprised when 'it giveth and taketh away'
asciilifeform: aha.
decimation: if nursing home, doctor, real estate - had to be paid for in gold that couldn't be magicked into existance, the prices would change rapidly...
