This is really interesting. The numbers are staggering. Enjoy!
In answer to the eternal question "Is it better to be a jock or a nerd?" Michael Jordan will make over 300,000 a game: 10,000 a minute, assuming he averages about 30 minutes per game. Assuming 40 million in endorsements next year, he'll be making 178,100 a day (working or not)! Assuming he sleeps 7 hours a night, he makes 52,000 every night while visions of sugar plums dance in his head. If he goes to see a movie, it'll cost him 7.00, but he'll make 18,550 while he's there. If he decides to have a 5 minute egg, he'll make 618 while boiling it. He makes 7,415/hr more than minimum wage (after the wage hike) He'll make 3,710 while watching each episode of Friends. If he wanted to save up for a new Acura NSX (90,000) it would take him a whole 12 hours. If someone were to hand him his salary and endorsement money, they would have to do it at the rate of 2.00 every second. He'll probably pay around 200 for a nice round of golf, but will be 'reimbursed' 33,390 for that round. Assuming he puts the federal maximum of 15% of his income into his tax deferred account (401k), he will hit the federal cap of 9500 for such accounts at 8:30 a.m. on January 1st, 1997. If you were given a tenth of a penny for every dollar he made, you'd be living comfortably at 65,000 a year. He'll make about 19.60 while watching the 100 meter dash in the Olympics. He'll make about 15,600 while the Boston Marathon is being run. While the common person is spending about 20 for a meal in his trendy Chicago restaurant, he'll pull in about 5600. Next year, he'll make more than twice as much as all of our past presidents for all of their terms combined. Amazing isn't it?
JORDAN WILL HAVE TO SAVE 100% OF HIS INCOME FOR 270 YEARS TO HAVE A NET WORTH EQUIVALENT TO THAT OF BILL GATES.
NERDS RULE! NERDS RULE! NERDS RULE!
