What would happen if no one could make more than 100,000 dollars a year?
My Daughter asked me, "Hey Dad, what would happen if no one could make more than 100,000 dollars a year?"
We talked for a little while, but ultimately, I need more direction. What books should my daughter and I read, to help us answer this question?
(This debate has been up for a little while now, and honestly, I could not word the question correctly. I was hoping that people would assume that 100,000 dollars meant 100,000 dollars today, and people could not make anymore than 100,000 dollars. If you currently make 500,000 dollars a year, and your job now only paid 100,000 dollars per year, would you still do your job?)
Closing Statement from Thomas Anderson
Thank you very much for your comments! I was secretly hoping a millionaire would comment, and explain that he/she would gladly find ways to help with creating equal, fair, opportunities for everyone (and really mean it). My daughter was hoping to see how a millionaire would live if he/she could only earn 100,000 dollars.
