Math problem: person A invests $5 per week in lottery tickets for 30 years. Person B invests $5 per week in VWO, an emerging markets index fund. Person C buys a $5 book each week and reads it. Person D goes to the bar every Friday night, buys one $5 drink, and talks to the other folks there. After 30 years, who comes out ahead?
zipTimer: an iPod/iPhone app for pacing piano practice, cooking, workouts, you name it.
The ones who come out ahead are the ones who are actually working. In your example, they are:
The bar tender for drink sales
The bookstore owner for book sales
The convenience store owner for lottery ticket sales
The brokerage for investment sales
He he he! Good solution.
