    Actually those at the top end are also unequal, by definition. Inequality is a problem for everyone.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    Meanwhile in the Money Matters real world ...

    Westpac Banking Corporation ("Westpac" or "Issuer") has lodged with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission ("ASIC") a Prospectus dated 5 February 2018 ("Offer Document") in relation to an offer ("Offer") of unsecured notes issued by Westpac ("Notes" or "Securities"). The Offer size is A$750 million, with the ability to raise more or less.

    The Offer size is A$750 million, with the ability to raise more or less.

    The Initial Face Value for each Note is A$100 but may be reduced following a Capital Trigger Event or Non-Viability Trigger Event.

    Minimum application must be 50 Notes (A$5,000) and thereafter in multiples of 10 Notes (A$1,000).

    I have no personal interest and not posting this as a suggestion to purchase shares.

    Almost back to normal after yesterday's onslaught.

    Aus ASX on the way to recovery gaining quite a bit of ground in today's solid performance.

    Waiting to see how the Dow Jones performs today (don't forget the time zone difference - it's still Wed 7:10 AM right now in the Big Apple!)

    Went to check out the Toys R Us closing down sale today. 5% off Lego. Not really inspiring any snap purchases.

    Average household wealth now exceeds $1m

    Richest Aussies getting richer, data shows
    The West Australian
    12.7.19

    Australia's richest households have gotten richer over the past decade while middle and low-income earners have barely seen an increase in their earnings.

    On average, Australian households are now worth more than $1 million, but that figure is heavily skewed by the wealthiest 20 per cent, who now control 60 per cent of all household wealth.

    Asset-rich, cash-poor Australians are relying on strong increases in property prices and superannuation balances to drive the wealth growth, as income growth has stagnated.

    Australian Bureau of Statistics chief economist Bruce Hockman said average household wealth was $1.02 million in 2017/18, compared to nearly $749,000 in 2005/06....

    Given my lack of knowledge/commitment to playing stockmarket, I am pleased to see property performing strongly .

    I used cash (for milk at Woolies) for first time in 11 months today.
    That's due to $323.30 in coins, found during decluttering in a jar forgotten in the back of a cabinet drawer.
    Nice Xmas present, thanks!

    Days in NZ are very busy and eventful, however, nights can be boring! (I am not anywhere near big cities at present).
    So my only entertainment apart from having a bit of a laugh with the miserable xr stinker rantings here is to utilize
    my fluky talents and soccer knowledge to make some extra money.

    that was an easy one hehe GO UNITED

    Attachment 3977

    but also these two little beauties came handy!

    Attachment 3978

    (BTW I am not even a gambling person, in fact I hate gambling but hey, when the money is for the taking, can hardly resist the temptation 0 and make an extra buck or two!) .That's Aussie $ not Kiwi ones!
    (1 Aus $ = 1.04 NZ) this morning!
