  • I’m a Millionaire and it’s Really Hard Being Rich

    Being extremely wealthy isn’t the carefree, champagne-soaked free-for-all you might imagine it to be — at least according to Jennifer Risher. She and her husband, David, earned tens of millions of dollars in the tech world before the ages of 35, and suddenly found themselves in an elite tax bracket without a manual on how to navigate the potential pitfalls of isolation and strained social relationships. “We see wealth from a really narrow perspective: the glitz, the glamour and the greed, but we don’t see the reality,” Risher, 55, told The Post. “Money is a taboo subject, but it really...

    **SNIP** The 77-year-old has touted himself as "Middle-Class Joe" for decades - but he and his wife, Jill, have a net worth of $9 million, according to a Forbes estimate from July 2019. The couple's fortune is mostly tied to public speaking engagements and book royalties, according to tax returns and financial disclosures released by the Biden campaign and published on the campaign's website. **SNIP** Since 1998, the first year Biden released his tax returns, the majority of the Bidens' income was attributed to his Senate salary and her community college professor's salary, according to Forbes. Biden's salary in 2009,...
  • 42-year-old millionaire: I tried to retire early at 34—but failed. Here’s what went wrong (california)

    In 2012, I decided to quit my six-figure job in investment banking and retire at 34. I had amassed a net worth of about $3 million that generated roughly $80,000 in investment income per year. For seven years, I lived a charmed life in early retirement with my wife, who also retired from her finance job three years after I did. Together, we earned roughly $250,000 in passive income streams per year — mostly from dividend-paying stocks, interest from savings, municipal bonds, and rental income.

  • How Bernie Sanders, The Socialist Senator, Amassed A $2.5 Million Fortune

    Bernie Sanders, the democratic socialist senator from Vermont, is a fierce critic of the affluent in America. That’s a bit rich, considering he himself is well off. Sanders, 77, has, in fact, amassed an estimated $2.5 million fortune from real estate, investments, government pensions—and earnings from three books, including the 2016 hit Our Revolution: A Future to Believe In. “I wrote a best-selling book. If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too,” he recently told the New York Times, striking a downright Trumpian note. Since his bid for the Democratic nomination raised his profile in 2016,...

    Townhall ^ | 04/12/2019 | Stephen Smoot
    Yes, Bernie Sanders owes me money, and probably a lot of other people as well. Recent financial disclosures of Senator Socialist’s finances reveal that he made over $1 million in the past two years. His earnings mainly come from best-selling books Our Revolution, Bernie Sanders’ Guide to Political Revolution, and Where We Go From Here. Sanders concedes that his tax returns will affirm this information and assures his supporters that his tax returns, when released, will reveal very little of interest. When asked about the millions he made, Sanders responded "If you write a best-selling book, you can be a...

    Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders announced he will release 10 years of his tax returns and revealed he is a millionaire thanks to his best-selling book 'Our Revolution.' 'I wrote a best-selling book,' he told The New York Times. 'If you write a best-selling book, you can be a millionaire, too.' Sanders said he would release his returns by Tax Day on Monday and said he hoped President Donald Trump would do the same. 'On the day in the very immediate future, certainly before April 15, we release ours, I hope that Donald Trump will do exactly the same. We...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders says he’ll “soon” release a decade’s worth of his tax returns. But the independent from Vermont who last week launched his second straight bid for the Democratic presidential nomination downplayed the public unveiling of his financial details, saying “they’re very boring tax returns.” LIFESTYLES OF THE RICH AND SOCIALIST A rival for the nomination – Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts – last August posted 10 years of her returns online. Asked during a CNN town hall Monday night why the delay in releasing his returns, Sanders answered “well, you know, the delay is not -- it'll bore...

    Anyone can become rich if they know the right steps to take. But if you possess a certain set of characteristics, you may be more likely to become wealthy, according to Sarah Stanley Fallaw, director of research for the Affluent Market Institute. She co-authored “The Next Millionaire Next Door: Enduring Strategies for Building Wealth,” in which she surveyed more than 600 millionaires in America. To identify characteristics most predictive of net worth, Stanley Fallaw conducted two studies that included a group of individuals with a net worth ranging from $100,000 to $1 million and a group of high- and ultra-high-net-worth...

    For the first time since 2010, Maryland does not rank as the top state for millionaires per capita. Maryland, which fell to No. 4, was replaced on this year’s list by New Jersey. When compared with states, the District now ranks No. 2 for millionaires. Phoenix Marketing International’s annual Phoenix Wealth and Affluent Monitor survey found that U.S. millionaire households have risen to 7.7 million. Over the past 12 months, the number of households in the U.S. with over $1 million in assets has increased by 534,000.

    According to new research released by Charles Varner, associate director of the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality, California lost an estimated 138 high-income individuals following passage of the Proposition 30 income tax increase championed by Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and approved by Golden State voters in 2012. This new research by Varner updates a previous paper released six years ago that looked at domestic migration to and from California following a 2004 income tax hike. “One reason we wanted to update our previous paper is that this tax change in 2012 is the largest state tax change that we...

    It’s good to be a socialist rock star. You get to denounce billionaires and the one percent while owning three homes and earning a million dollars a year. At least that’s how it has worked out for Senator Bernie Sanders. The site VT Digger reports: A recent financial disclosure report shows the junior Vermont senator made nearly $1.06 million in 2017. Most of his income — $885,767 — came from advances and royalties, according to the report filed in May…The senator hit the $1 million mark for the first time in 2016.

    I must admit I have never in my life purchased a ticket to a sports event. I am not a sports enthusiast. But I am an American black citizen, and I have had it up to the gills with black people who embrace victimhood. I also highly resent my being expected to do the same in order to affirm my “blackness.” Black victims these days, for the most part, are the product of decades of Black Americans being used primarily by white progressive leftists to advance an anti-American agenda. The current brouhaha surrounding the despicable behavior of NFL athletes toward...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders rails against the “billionaire class” and has called income inequality “the greatest moral issue of our time,” but the senator from Vermont is “not exactly a man of modest means,” according to an article written by Kerri Anne Renzulli for the TIME magazine website. However, “nothing about Bernie’s net worth devalues his progressive beliefs,” stated Peter Daou, a former adviser to Hillary Clinton who responded on the Blue Nation Review website to reports that Sanders and his wife, Jane, could retire with an “effective retirement nest egg” valued at “nearly $2 million.”

    NASCAR is the latest corporation to distance itself from Donald Trump. On the same day one of its top sponsors called on NASCAR to take a stance against Trump, the motorsports series said it will not hold its season-ending awards ceremony at the Trump National Doral Miami. "We looked at everything we saw coming down and what we heard from our sponsors and our partners and what we feel we should be doing, and that's what led us to the decision today," NASCAR spokesman David Higdon said Friday at Daytona International Speedway. Trump's spokesman, Hope Hicks, declined to comment to...

    In Finland, traffic violation fees are on a “sliding-scale” basis, according to the seriousness of the traffic offense and how much the offender makes. Which is bad news for rich people with bad driving habits because authorities check your tax returns should you surface on their radar. Meet businessman Reima Kuisla. The BBC reported poor, or rather rich, Mr. Kuisla was driving 14 mph over the speed limit and was stopped by a police officer. After perusing his 2013 tax return, he was issued a ticket for almost $60,000. His tax returns revealed he brought in $7.2M in 2013. But,...
