A picture is worth a thousand words…. or perhaps in this case, a billion dollars. Cost of Ramen Noodles 25-35 cents per package. Cost of Hamburger Helper $1.35 per box with $3-4 dollars per package of hamburger meat. Cost of Butter Poached Sous-Vide Nova Scotia Lobster @ Per Se, New York (a CEO hotspot) $295.00 per plate. It is not jealously that drives us. It is bad teeth and failing health from malnutrition. We are not lazy, we work because we don’t like to starve— Although that seems like a losing battle these days. We are the 99% and we don’t want to go to bed hungry.
