Oh Boy, A $43.00 Hot Dog and a $47.00 Burger. I guess it's good to live like our owners do. Either these guys are dumber than they look or they're not letting us in on something (The High Life) LOL.

Well I don't know about you guys but I'd Never pay Forty Seven Bucks for a Burger No Matter how much money I had. It just shows you how warped and depraved the sort of money these people have makes them. So I've read that these relatively few people will own half of the assets in the world by 2016 and it seems any effort to share The World's Resources more equitably are fought tooth and nail by these Greedy B**tards.

So, What do you guys think? Any of our members here had a $43.00 Hot Dog in your lifetime or are you like the rest of us, just struggling to pay bills and waiting to buy things when they go on Major Sale?

As Always Guys and Gals, Any Comments, Digs, Stabs and General Drop Kicks are always welcome. Thanks Y'All for taking a look at this and Peace to All of You Here on ATS


Billionaires may live in a world untroubled by such petty concerns as rising costs of living and declining real wages, but like everyone else they have to eat. And pay. The picture below shows what the menu prices, in Swiss Francs, are for various meals offered for sale to the billionaires and other upper class "luminaries" currently congregating in Davos. Some examples converted to USD: Hot Dog: $43; Burger: $47; Caesar salad: $55.

Then again, the Swiss restaurant, like dutiful capitalists, are smart and merely introduced the "Billionaire surge pricing" strategy right out of the Uber playbook, which - when catering to people for whom things like "cost" are absolutely irrelevant, makes perfect sense.

As the regular menu at the same restaurant shows, outside of Davos season the cheeseburger is "only" CHF26, so a modest 60% markup for those who benefit the most from the global central bank-driven multiple-expansion rally. In retrospect, it is surprising the markup is this low." target="_blank" class="postlink"> -23/43-hot-dogs-47-burgers-and-55-caesar-salads-look-davos-menu

43 bucks? I could make a whole lotta dogs with that money. With that kinda money I could buy-

3 packs of philistine brand hot dog rolls
18 SJW free hot dogs
4 free range onions that would be sliced and grilled to perfection
4 jars of pickled Jalapenos (because Jalapenos go with everything)
1/2 pound of normal shredded cheese-not the cheese that comes from a rare Peruvian mountain goat

And to top it all off you'd get your sauce of choice.

Hey Thecakeisalie, I'm coming over there, you sound like you know what a Good Hot Dog Cookout is really about. I wouldn't even want to be in the company of these decadent self serving A**holes in Switzerland. A Good Menu and Reply on your part and A Star For You!

Hmmmmmmmmm I can tell you what that money buys...

1) the likes of you n I will not be there!
2) only the beautiful people will attend
3) less likelihood of someone spitting into their food out of spite cause how they talk, clothes they wear or fill in the blank reasons a jealous arse would defile food.

The movie with John Travolta and Uma Thurman in it Pulp Fiction wow what a classic where John says to Uma, I won't pay $5 for a shake.... later when Uma is clearly enjoying her $5 shake John asks to taste the shake so that he would know what a $5 shake taste like.... He enjoyed his taste but still questions if the $5 shake was worth $5.... but then that was a damn good shake...

Just my 2 cents worth...

$1 for the hot dog, $5 to have it served to you respectfully and without mishap, and $37 for the privilege of occupying space in their establishment.

Yeah Douglas5, Because we pay for it with our taxes. You know that they have Battalions of Lawyers and Accountants to make sure that they don't pay taxes and They Have No Nationality. The only Nation for them is Richistan LOL

I bought a $30.00 cigar once.

It actually was the best cigar i ever smoked.

I just might buy a burger for that much.

But it would have to have like lion meat in it.

It wouldnt be a daily thing.

It would be one of those " i can actually say i did it" kinda thing.

For that price I'd want flame-grilled Unicorn meat.

Liveforever8, I'm sure they'll find a way to Genetically Engineer it and grow your Unicorn Meat in A Petri Dish in some AgraGiants Lab (They're already doing it with Beef). They'll grow any sort of meat you want if you pay enough LOL. A good Reply and A Star

I think it's good marketing strategy to overprice items. The people that have money will buy it anyway because ;

- They feel like they deserve better because they are rich
- They think it's better since it's more expensive
- They get an ego boost from knowing that people can't intelligently afford it
- The restaurant can make much more money from working much less. (That's what rich people do anyway)
- What's really bad about abusing the rich anyway? A lot of them abused others to get there.

However it doesn't take a genius to make a fulfilling dog-most avant garde chefs would not be able to fry onion rings without garnishing it with almonds and calamari, but the backyard chef knows when the onion is done by smell alone.

Hotdogs are a simple treat enjoyed among friends or acquaintances-they have no place in a restaurant.

I wonder how these prices compare to the cost of these elite rich eating in their homes. By this I mean they have staff to prepare and serve their meals and select grocers to deliver quality foods to them. what are their actual cost per meal when they eat at home?

posted on Jan, 23 2015 @ 11:34 AM
That's not bad deal on a burger. You could pay more.

Well AD, When you're in The Business of creating or managing other people's money and taking a big slice out of it with every transaction. I'm sure you wouldn't be bothered with The Extreme Costs associated with feeding your Fat Faces in your own opulent setting on The Labor of Others. It just The Best for Us and everyone else can starve. That's the mentality and The Greed is Good Meme. Good Reply
