How Did the World Become So Seduced by the Protestant Work Ethic. 1 of 1 people found this post helpful Posted Feb 19, 2014 - 1:57 PM: Economist Timothy Taylor asks this in his lecture series by the Teaching Company: "Would you rather live today and make $55,000 a year (solidly middle class) or live in 1925 (rich, in the top 1%)?

How Did the World Become So Seduced by the Protestant Work Ethic

" He states that about 66% of his respondants pick "today," I think that answer elucidates a lot about why people like market economies. If you made $55k/year in 1925 you'd have servants, a large house, and be quite wealthy, although not super wealthy to the point where you'd weild a lot of power. However, you'd also only have access to 1925 level technology. If you make $55k/year today you're by no means rich. I think the comparison between being very rich just 85 years ago, and being middle class today shows why people like economic growth so much.

GibraltarWhy does Gibraltar remain staunchly British after more than 300 years despite it being the focus of long standing tension with neighbouring Spain? It may in part be because of political pressure as demonstrated by the 2002 referendum that saw more than 99 per cent of the population expressed their wish to remain British. But will this be respected by both governments in the long term or will it be sacrificed on the altar of international relations within the European Union? Other perhaps philosophical questions also arise. Schools, as Henry Parkes memorably said,... - The Sydney Morning Herald - Wealth & Privilege: Ten Exclusive Enclaves.

Wealth & Privilege: Ten Exclusive Enclaves

This is an article about ten tiny exclusive places that most Americans have never heard of…. and that is just the way the residents want it. The ten places in this article are virtually unknown beyond their immediate geographic area and extremely elite. I have stumbled upon many tiny elite enclaves that for various reasons don’t make the Higley 1000. Most commonly because they are too tiny to register or are summer vacation spots that are dominated by second homeowners that report their income at their main residence. There are no racial statistics to report, the following places are almost exclusively non-Hispanic White with the exception of an occasional caretaker.
