Off Topic Money Chat

As we approach Christmas in a world that appears to both love and fear innacurate and inflated stats, I thought I’d drop in a true one: if you’d worked 8hrs a day, 7 days a week, for the last 2020 years (since the ‘Virgin Birth’), on a rate of £25,000 per hour (£200K a day)… and spent nothing - you’d still have less money than Jeff Bezos

(might have stolen from the interweb).

But just think. His 193billion dollars has the same value as just 981k usd in 1800. So it may have been worth a ha’penny or even just a stone back in year 0 :wink:
