How do the super rich earn their $$$$ ?

According to a recent report cited by the Mankiw Blog

Those folks in the top 1/10% – the super-rich – are:

  • 18% financial professionals
  • 7% lawyers
  • 6% medicine
  • 6% not working or dead
  • 4% real estate
  • 3% in arts, media, or sports

* * * * *

  • 42% are executives, managers, or supervisors in nonfinancial businesses
  •   More than half of the 42% are in closely-held (i.e. small) businesses.

  * * * * *

Ken’s Take: Over 75%  make their money the old fashioned way … they earn it.
