A terrific article in the Wall Street Journal based on research by economist Barry Bosworth at the Brookings Institution crunched the numbers and found that the richer you are, the longer you’ll live. And it’s a gap that is widening, particularly among women. Other than likelihood of access to better health care, what is it the rich have that poorer folks don’t have? Money in and of itself may not be the answer; the answer is less worry and having less stress. If you have enough money every month to live as you wish then you have less stress.
