I don't care how Epstein acquired money, unless it was payment for sex with innocent men, women, and especially children.

I printed all of the window graphics and whatnot for all of Les Wexner's various corporations for a few years, back in the mid 20-ots, and there was some sorta local swingers club that he either owned or funded. They would periodically order huge purple penis silhouettes, presumably to hang on the walls or from the ceiling, or wherever else, and just put it on his tab.

I know that doesn't automatically make him a chomo by any stretch, but it was still a little bit "strange" to say the least of it.

This is not economics.

It would imply that if you simply tax more and regulate more, you will create higher wages/costs/such. That is almost assuredly incorrect.

I'm sure there's some luck factors, what with the placement of silicon valley, but for a variety of reasons, it's an extremely attractive place to live and that demand drives up all the other nonsense.
Sorry, but if the cost of living is very high in an area, the major way you are going to get people to work there is if you offer a higher wage unless there is some other factor that would make people work there. So the question would be why is the cost of living so high in California and one of the reasons I pointed out was they extreme Taxes, fees, levies, etc put on building a house by the local and state governments in California. And if you don't think that is a large factor in the high cost of living in California I don't know what to tell you. 

My undergraduate degree is in Economics, so I am not stupid about it. I will grant I used a simplification of "1 Factor" in the reason for higher salaries in California, but I assumed you didn't want to read a 20 page dissertation on why salaries in general are high in California and would accept they fact the the cost of housing is a factor in it. 

If you want (nevermind I don't want) we could get into a whole discussion of causation vs Correlation

Land is expensive in parts of CA for obvious reasons.  I'm sure an acre lot in SF would be pricey because of that demand thing.

SF also has a lot of codes preventing a developed from tearing down four story buildings and putting up a 60 story condo tower.

As you move further out into the hinterlands, land gets cheaper, obviously, I suspect that is true in general.

There is land in Miami/FtLaud/Palm Beach area that goes for tens of millions of dollars an acre. Drive 6-8 hours away in butt f***k Egypt central/northern Florida and you can buy acreage for few thousand dollars an acre.

Location, location, location. Baby.

Yeah, land cost is often the reason a place is ultra-expensive in which to live.  Try Paris.

Has Iggy Pop ever looked young?
Sort of like Michael McDonald, he's looked 50+ since he was 20.

It's amazing how much wealth these people accumulate while holding public office. You know it's not right. We all do.
