Thats right ladies and gentelmen, as your 401k got cut in half, as your investment protfolio evaporated, as your boss couldn't get a loan to pay your salery and had to lay you off, as your equity in your home disapeared or as you were thrown out of your home, the very people who have destroyed YOUR economy are have $2,000 brunches on Saturday morning on YOUR tax dollars.




A 29-year-old man who works for a large investment management firm and was at Bagatelle’s brunch one recent Saturday and at Merkato 55’s the next, put it another way: “If you’d asked me in October, I’d say it’d be a different situation, and I don’t think I’d be here. Then the government gave us $10 billion.




As for another set of partyers, the New York investment bankers whose once-hefty bonuses may have significantly diminished in recent months, “instead of having the $10,000 to $15,000 to spend on a Saturday afternoon, they might spend $2,000 to $3,000,” Mr. Laba said. “Which is fine.”
