There seems to be this “narrative” (where’d that buzz word come from?) these days that rich people don’t know they’re rich. I’ve been resisting this trend. I didn’t point you towards DeLong through Krugman. But I couldn’t resist this clip from Jon Stewart.

It’s a strange world we live in -- where the rich feel like they’re victims. Brad DeLong does a good job of explaining the psychosis. Hopefully everyone that has time to read it, the ability to understand it and the the thousand dollar laptop (iPad, Droid, et al) to read it on will understand just how privileged we all are.
