Bloombergian Dystopia

Michael Bloomberg Thinks He's a 'Godsend'
And if we're lucky we can all be employed as servants, gladiators and sex workers for the amusement of our billionaire betters. Whee!
"Mayor Scrooge McDuck echoed his comments to New York's Chris Smith about how amazing wealthy people are for NYC ("Wouldn't it be great if we could get all the Russian billionaires to move here?") in his weekly radio interview today. "You picture this income inequality measure, but if we could get every billionaire around the world to move here, it would be a godsend," said Bloomberg. "They are the ones that spend a lot of money in the stores and restaurants and create a big chunk of our economy. And we take the tax revenues from those people to help people throughout the entire rest of the spectrum." Bloomberg is now worth an estimated $31 billion"
