‘Wall Street’s Ultimate Burger’

There’s something very funny about watching Bloomberg News radio host Tom Keene, Business Insider Deputy Editor Joe Wiesenthal, and Bloomberg News Wall Street Reporter Max Abelson discuss “Wall Street’s ultimate burger.” Keene and Abelson both chose burgers that cost just under $20, but Wiesenthal chose the $140 burger full of truffles from DB Bistro. “It’s definitely worth $140,” Wiesenthal says. I guess I’ll never know if he’s right because there’s no way I’m going to spend that much money on a burger—truffles or no truffles.

I wonder how much money you’d have to make before spending $140 on one entree, any entree, was worth it.
Related/devil’s advocate: are corn subsidies and ensuing 99-cent cheeseburgers alongside $7 salads warping the average person’s idea of how much food should cost?

@BananaPeel What part of the cheeseburger is corn?

@deepomega Not sure, but I suspect it’s the feed the cows eat.

@deepomega It’s cheaper to feed cows corn than grass, and corn subsidies make it even cheaper. We burger-eaters are a step removed :)

Mike Dang loves a good burger, and the Billfold archives prove it.
