“We look for places where the math is right. Meaning what? Meaning that population is about to explode—-we can predict that just by looking at age histogram—-and per capita income is about to take off the way it did in Nippon, Taiwan, Singapore. Multiply those two things together and you get the kind of exponential growth that should get us all into fuck-you money before we turn forty.
This is an allusion to a Randy/Avi conversation of two years ago wherein Avi actually calculated a specific numerical value for ‘fuck-you money.’ It was not a fixed constant, however, but rather a cell in a spreadsheet linked to any number of continually fluctuating economic indicators. Sometimes when Avi is working at his computer he will leave the spreadsheet running in a tiny window in the corner so that he can see the current value of ‘fuck-you money’ at a glance.”
my coworker applied to law school this year & was accepted to several top 5 programs (without significant aid offers). she wasn’t sure whether she should go to one of those top programs & take out 250k in debt or someplace less prestigious on a full scholarship….
