    Income minus outgo is the simple formula.....
    I know people of many income and education levels who can't seem to make the outgo less than the income.

    Vote in this poll. Then you may post your sources of income--employment, self-employment, retirement, capital gains, social security, alimony, rent, royalties, etc.
    My biggest issue with this is human nature...it was set so that others could see your answer. How many of us would be willing to offer such personal financial information on a public internet forum unless we were afraid of losing nothing? I mean really...why would I release my net worth per year in a forum that allowed for suits against my net worth to reference this information?

    That's just dumb.

    And, at the time I'm posting this, that is what happened. 30 people checked "over $50K. Four others checked $40K to $50K.

    Let's assume these answers are honest and that all of them read and understood that these were individual incomes and not family incomes.

    Many are asking why I didn't use larger numbers. It looks like most of the people on this forum are in good financial shape, unless they are in high rent places like NYC or L.A.

    But, look at the other end of the spectrum. The next largest number, 9, checked the lowest figure--Under $5K. I expected something like this because unemployment is at record levels right now--and rising--and will continue to rise until next year when enough Republicans and fiscal conservatives get seats in Congress and legislatures to halt the reckless spending, taxing, and regulating.

    Only a handful voted for anything in the middle--no more than 2 votes in any one category.

    As a result of this poll, we now see that the great majority of people fall at the extremes of very poor (under $5K) and the well to do at $50K and above. The big number poll did not provide this information.

    And the under $5K category looks like it is rapidly growing. Welcome to the Greater Depression.

    Looking at the way things are going, if you're making $50K, the government might consider you rich and soak you.

    I was in St Petersburg and Sarasota last year. All along the Tamiami Trail I personally saw at least one out of every three businesses closed and boarded up. There were unemployed people all over the place.

    There are many others just like you.

    Yes, there are some places where living costs are outrageous. I'll bet the place where you live has lots of big government that taxes and regulates the hell out of everybody--maybe NY, NJ, MA, RI, or CA.


    You needed an "over $500,000" option.
    Don't let Obama find out. He'll soak you.

    There is a big difference between under $5K and $15K to $20K. The huge majority was under $5K.

    There is another poll that has the large numbers you like.

    Maybe one of those $50K earners would be willing to hire you. Would you accept $15K?

    That's at least a 40 foot shipping container full of those $100 trillion dollar notes.

    Zimbabwe dollars, of course.

    You cheated a bit. The poll said individual income, not family income. If you make nothing, you are not alone; there are millions of others (9 million new ones this past year) on the same Obama-Biden Titanic.

I could make 10K a month and have left $400 a month to save up. That doesn't make me rich.
    Believe it or not, I know people who make $20K and do very well.

    This is what I should be doing, retired on less than $30K annually....
    I could retire very well on $30K.

    Uh, what if the cost of living in my state are high too? Don't be so self-centered.

    This poll is nice, but it hardly represents the population as a whole and its not the least bit scientific. You can't make any educated guesses based on it.

    Which is rich. $100,000 is for that matter. Even then taxes are the same rate as during the Bush years so its a moot point on the right to complain.

    20k is below the typical entry-level starting salary around here. Nobody can live here on that for long.

    I could retire very well on $30K.
    Maybe, since the government will be taking care of your medical insurance.
