Occupation/Profession Survey

We had an age survey, a mother tongue survey, how about a what's your occupution or profession survey. :p

=====================================================================

"Housewife" option, on second thoughts, should be changed to "Housewife/Househusband".

Made a mistake - should have put in Student option. Students, please choose 'Others'.

Re: Occupation/Profession Survey

Why does it have to be "marketing executive" - what if you are some other type of executive?

Interesting it is. There are many ways people think of themselves as millionaires.
The true measure is often defined as "liquid assets"

Definitely. I'm a millionaire in assets - purely because of my real estate assets, but far from a "liquid millionaire".

The 'love canal" incident changed a lot of thinking, even Donald Trump almost went bankrupt at one point with the collapse of his leveraged real estate holdings. Thats why they say "Cash is King". lol

Again, true, luckily most of my real estate assets are far from inflated prices, and has very, very little chance in retracting in value - there's always a need for fertile farmland right in the heart of the Midwest

Well, I am not sure on that one. My father is a millionaire several times over, but his assets are very illiquid. They don't need to be, he never spends any of it!

I am just saying how some surveys measure of the number of "millionares" (are calculated) as they compare growth of this catagory in statistical analysis. I would rather have a million riches of family and children. However, having 'both' can be good as well. Anyway, a million ain't what it used to be...

A Million $US won't buy you a half decent house in many parts of the UK.

Exactly.

A million is a lot - don't get me wrong - but it's all in relation to the location and living costs. A million in California for instance is chump change, in the Midwest - you can live off of it for life.

Hold on now...my son is going off to college this year.
My daughter turns 14. It's YOUR turn to have the fun.
And with the many young employees at our business I feel like I am raising dozens of kids sometimes!

I've seen people coming with a group "Millionaire - excluding one's home".

I wouldn't exactly call those liquid assets at the moment!

It always worries me with Americans just how many Zeros we are talking about. As a millionaire is clearly someone with a lot of money, but the billion has been devalued by a factor of 10^3 and a Trillion 10^6. We only need for inflation to get out of control, which is not difficult to envisage in a nation spending beyond its means, before we end up with Million being worth more than a Billion or perhaps even more than a Trillion.

Neither would I, that was just a bit of a joke since touch has seen a classification of "all assets" except for primary residence. That leaves things wide open to valuation. Thats why I earlier said 'liquid assets' is the best true measurement according to some.

Well, I wasn't and it only takes a gaff from the intellectually challenged GW, with the rest of the nation being too repectful to correct him, and we Brits end up throwing another set of Britannica's into the skip.
