The Future’s So Bright, Bobo’s Gotta Wear Shades

April 7th, 2010at 11:38am Posted by Eli

Fun facts I learned from yesterday’s David Brooks column:

o America is in great shape because we will have 100 million more people in 2050.

o “[T]he real action will be out in the compact, self-sufficient suburban villages.”

o The 12% decline in people making $35,000-70,000 a year is due to a 14% increase in those making more than $105,000. Because apparently there are just as many people making over $105,000 as there are making $35-70,000.

o 60% of Americans made over $100,000 in at least one of the last ten years. And 40% made that for at least three.

o “[M]oral materialism… creates meaning-rich products.” NO ONE KNOWS WHAT THIS MEANS.

Obviously I’m living in the wrong universe. I need to move to Earth-Two where Bobo lives, because it sounds awesome. Plus I’m pretty sure I’m due for my $100,000 any time now.
