Discussion with Jim Mora on Critical Mass today was sparked by:
* Twenty money-saving tips from bankers and their wives (for which I tip a hat to A Bee of a Certain Age) and the comments which it provoked.
Among those comments were:
Kudos on finding that delicate balance between classism and sexism.

You know, this is good, but I think you’re missing a few things that might really help the average wealthy investment banker take the sting out of tightening his belt. For example: . . .
– If you are not particularly fond of one or more of your younger children, there is a great way to kill two birds with one stone by cutting costs at home on food AND the mouths you need to feed. I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee or a ragout. Not to mention the guilt you will spare yourself by not having to put the little tyke into a private school. It may sound radical, but it’s just a modest proposal.

One way that I save myself money on a regular basis is by parking my private jet and just taking the bus to Vegas. A jet is not really necessary unless travelling over oceans. This method has saved me bucket loads of cash. I recommend you all to do the same, but if those smelly commoners are just too dirty for you to rub elbows with, you might also consider booking a personal car on the train.
