Pet Peeve.
When rich people contribute a dollar amount and expect everyone else to contribute the same dollar amount without seeming to realize how math works.
For example, let's say a rich guy's nut is 10k per month, and thanks to his success and acumen he has an extra 10K per month lying around. That $500 donation is 5% of his disposable income for the month.
Now let's look at the normal guy. Say his nut is 7k per month, and he has 1k left over at the end of the month. The rich guy says "fair is fair, let's all give $500" but for the normal guy that's 50% of his disposable income.
Any thoughts on how to teach rich people computations?
