I sold my almost new brick home in my hometown 20 years ago. It's still one of the best neighborhoods in the city. The current owner has remodeled it in the past 2 years. The home is now up for sale at a 60% increase over what I sold it for. Home prices haven't risen much compared to wages. My salary has risen much more than 60% in the past 20 years. Rent in my hometown is around double of what it was 20 years ago.

My hometown friend's son, who lives in the hometown, is making three times the salary there that I was making 20 years ago.

Come on people, stop feeling entitled to a free life of the sweat of others.

The richest 1%, heck, even the richest 10%, have also done pretty well because the S&P500 has trippled since the financial crisis. It's nice when your money makes more money for you.

You forgot to mention the huge increase in house prices and rent as a proportion of salaries.

Oh, I thought this was either about all the English teachers moving from Korea to China or about all the people going from the way# site due to their blocking and charging for out date ppt downloads. Either way, I've hardly used that one in years. Been a proud long term Daves user. Well back migrators. Ha ha. For those leaving Korea to go to China, you're welcome to leave here and go there too. Ha ha.

Haven't they always been there?

I mean low paying BBQ restaurants often have Chinese as waiters and waitresses.

It would be something new if the billionaires were moving.

Did you know that China now has more billionaires than America?

I've heard of them paying western girls ridiculous amounts of money to basically baby sit their kids.

Yeah. It's amusing to think of Seoul as a clean air destination but for Beijinger it is.


A Chinese billionaire is going to San Francisco or Vancouver (Hongcouver), not Seoul, to live. Seoul is a quick weekend jaunt for shopping.

When did people stop posting here on Dave's? It was a lively place back in 2010.

Donald J Trump

The S&P500 is up 20% since Trump has been in office. Moved $4500 in earnings over into an IRA last week.

Trump has been very good to me.

The S&P rose more in Obama's 1st year (26%), but there are 3 more trading days...
