Here’s an idea to help the economy – retire the wealthy. If you are a wealthy working American, with a net worth over $1 million, please do the country a favor and retire. If you love your country, please quit your job, take your money and have a good life. Retirement is the best action you can take to help the United States economically recover.
If you have a net worth over $1 million you are unnecessarily working. Your retirement will reduce unemployment, increase wages in the economy, and spur economic growth.
A net worth of $1 million will allow you to spend a starting sum of $3,333 per month, which gets adjusted up every year to match inflation, for the rest of your life no matter when you retire. If you retire at 60, you can spend $4000 per month, and survive the great depression. Add any Social Security or pension payments to that amount. Not bad eh?
If you are wealthy and work, because you wish to remain active, think about quitting your job and volunteering your time and energy. A search of volunteermatch.org produced 1355 volunteer opportunities within a 2o mile radius of my home.
