@joyballz I'll join in! 04/04/2012 = $0 04/04//2013 = $3,053.72 + plus $600 more in two sub accounts. Thank you Mike and Logan!
@joyballz Great game! 04/04/12 = $542.38 04/04/13 - $4,026.31 holy cow! but I did also move on March 30 last year, so that probably contributed to this.
Happy birthday, Billfold!! Savings account balance as of: 04/04/12= $482.17 04/04/13= $2682.38 Thanks, Billfold!!
This was amazing. Great writing. I love reading a piece where the author learns something about herself.
@ASCtvartedun This is not useful for any divorced child of the 99%. I'm not sure the goal of this piece was to be "useful" or to act as a "guide" in any particular sense of the word. It's pretty consistent with the format of other Billfold content we see semi-regularly.
@ASCtvartedun I think your criticism is a little harsh. A divorce took a financial toll on her personally on her family (just like one did to you). Is her perspective not valid unless she is poorer?
You should make this week end check in a regular feature -- I'm sure lots of us would be interested in hearing about Logan making progress towards her financial goals.
I would pay them. It's the right thing to do, you'll still have a ton of money, and the government could really use it. People don't pay enough in taxes in this country and that's why all our social services get cut. The tax rate has consistently declined over the last century and that's why the government can't afford to help people anymore and there is greater wealth disparity than ever before. No one person actually NEEDS billions of dollars. He probably couldn't spend that money in his lifetime if he tried. Tens of millions of dollars is nothing compared to the billions he will still have. Plus, my family is here, and I'd miss them.
I'd pay the taxes. Yeah, it's a ton of money, but you are talking about a chunk of change out of THREE BILLION DOLLARS. It's not like you'd be left destitute; you'd still be rolling in more money than you could possibly know what to do with.
Biebs and his manager got a Forbes cover story today, too, for their investment in social media startups.
