My ‘editorial staff’ permitted my previous article to be published with a glaring dose of heinous stupidity.
The premise: buy good china — because MUH lady friends and MUH rate of return.
What I failed to include was compounded rates of return and MUH inflation. When you calculate the compounded rate of return, it equals out to just 3.51%, turning an $85 investment in 1918 into $2,400 today. After inflation, it turns to complete shit. An $85 purchase in 1918 dollars is equal to $1,395, leaving the rate of return substantially less than the 3.51% quoted pre-inflation. You’d be better off investing in just about anything else in the world other than fancy Haviland china.
Given the circumstances and the fucking hassle in preserving fine china and washing them all the time, one could argue buying and eating on crappy generic paper’d plates is preferable. This way, you can whip something up real quick, eat it, then toss it into the landfill.
As for entertaining guests, take them to a fine eatery. Who the fuck hosts dinner parties at home these days anymore, anyhow? In the event you’re having a party, serve on those fancy hard plastic ones and tell them they’re environmentally friendly and that you oppose the fine china industry because it employs slave and child labor in the far east and that you will not be a party to such shenanigans.
Off to go buy some food for a late dinner snack.If you enjoy the content at iBankCoin, please follow us on Twitter
