Imagine a rich guy. He owns a mansion on a huge plot. Everyday he wakes up, goes to work, works 15 hours, comes home, eats, goes to sleep. He works very hard. Makes a ton of money. One day all the poor and lower middle class disappear. All of a sudden our rich man has to ...clean his own house ...cut his own grass ...cook his own food ...change his own oil ...replace his own alternator ...repair his own broken window ...shovel his own snow ...iron his own clothes ...wash his own laundry In short - do a lot of the things that ordinary people have to do on their own - except he has to do it much more because he's got a much bigger house - leaving less time for him to do the job that makes him wealthy. In fact - with a home 5-10 X bigger than most Americans, its doubtful he'll have any time left over for work at all. So what happens? Does his sacrifice time at work? Does his downsize his mansion to a more manageable living area? Or does he just let everything go to shit? Any ideas?
