NJ a bit more unequal

From the Star Ledger:

The gap between rich and poor in N.J. keeps getting bigger. See how bad it is in your town.

New Jersey is becoming a more unequal place to live.

Over the past five years, the gap between the rich and the poor has widened, according to new U.S. Census data. The state now ranks in the top ten in the nation for income inequality.

Edmond Berisha, an assistant professor of economics at Montclair State University, said this was because middle class families weren’t making enough to keep up with inflation, while the richest 10 percent were actually bringing in more money than a decade ago.

About half of all income in the state was going to that richest 10 percent, he said, and an improving stock market only widened that divide.

While Essex ranks as the most unequal county in New Jersey, there are high concentrations of wealth across the state.

    Look at the bright side, once we chase all the rich out of NJ, we’ll be WAAAAY more equal.

  2. Phoenix says:

    Chase them all out, the sooner the better. Then we can finally hit the reset button which is what NJ needs more than anything. We might as well be number one, the first state to fiscally crash beyond all repair.

    “After publishing my post, The Wide Implications Of The College Admissions Scandal, a recurring question kept coming up: Why didn’t these parents just donate $500,000 to legally get their kid in instead of going the illegal bribery route?

    The answer is simple: $500,000 is simply not enough to legally bribe an entire admissions committee. Let’s say there are eight people on the admissions committee. Some will undoubtedly want more, some will likely refuse until you give them a whole lot more. Therefore, instead of $500,000, you’ll likely need $5 million.

    These parents logically see a $500,000 bribe as a 90% discount. Once again, a personal finance decision.

    Other people commenting over social media found it incredulous for a parent to donate $500,000 to get their kid into USC when the kid would be better off going to Cal State with $500,000 in cash. I agree with this logic, but what people don’t understand is that people who are able to spend $500,000 on a bribe likely have a $20 million or greater net worth.”

    Wow, very healthy real estate market. Prices are not getting out of control. Beautiful thing. I guess the market doesn’t always kill itself every time in capitalism. Maybe people are finally getting smarter. You know the capital is there to push these prices higher, but people aren’t being stupid competing to illogical price levels. You don’t really see this too often…usually greed takes control over logic.

    “Finally, everyone believes the tsunami of tech IPOs this year will boost real estate prices in the SF Bay Area. I decided to do a detailed analysis and think about how the tech IPOs could cause real estate prices to drop further.

    I say further because the median SF real estate price is down about 11.5% from its early 2018 peak. Prices will likely jump in the spring as they usually do due to seasonality, but by next year prices could drop down and them some due to a continued surge in supply.

    Please check out How The Tech IPOs Could Accelerate The Decline in SF Bay Area Real Estate Prices. I think this analysis is very applicable to other expensive coastal cities that might have new IPOs or large M&A activity.

    Check out the inventory rising in other major cities this spring according to data from Redfin.”

  7. Blue Ribbon Teacher says:

    A $500,000 donation is more than enough to get your kid in. And you don’t need to bribe an admissions committee. If one member insists a kid get in, the rest will rubber stamp it. That’s how committees work. My friend is the secretary for the admissions dean at Princeton.

    30% of the graduating class of the Lawrenceville school goes to Princeton. Do you think they are bribing their way in? No. Their parents are all paying $200k cash for a crappy high school education which sends a signal that they are loaded. So, they can pay the absurd tuition for Princeton up front and make a decent $50k donation to some department. Viola….admitted…no questions asked. These parents that were bribing their way in and faking test scores are seriously lacking intelligence.

  8. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    If you want “more equal” in NJ it looks like you have three choices: Sussex county, Warren county, or Pennsyltucky.

    BTW, how much does everybody make when we get to income equality? It all has to be the same, right?

  9. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    The analysis also found that the average tax amount in Maryland increased by 2 percent in 2017 when compared to 2016. The average annual property tax in Maryland for 2017 was $3,495 in 2017 and in 2016 that figure was $3,437.

    Two Maryland counties — Howard and Montgomery — had an average property tax amount of $6,000 or higher. The new tax bill signed into law by President Trump caps the state and local tax deduction, limiting the deduction residents can claim on their 2018 tax returns to $10,000. Howard County had an average property tax amount of $6,450, according to the analysis, while Montgomery County averages $6,539.

  12. Not Commie Grimmy says:

    Grim, that is BS.

    First, Medicare for All or Medicare for None. Either everyone gets it, or is time for the geezers to get going into the hole. This is the measuring stick of the coming election. If Medicare for All happens then by default it means that Big Medical Pharma complex is brought to heel. If is not, it means they run the roost, however, it means that anybody younger than a baby boomer will no longer support Medicare as is, they want to kill it off.

    Just what do you think a Hackensack Meridian or a RWJ Barnabas does. What all big health systems have done is bring the independent contractor physicians into groups they control, where the physicians are employees. Very highly paid employees, but w-2 employees none the less. No more independent contractor/professional corp. Think the TV show House.

    Grim, I understand your polish background, so by default you are more recalcitrant and socially conservative, and did a priest did a Michael Jackson on you?.

    Poland is in the vanguard of european countries going to illiberal democracy mode. See the Washington Post link at 10:47.

    However, you are thinking of a false choice. The fact is that whether it ends up as an UK National Health Service Trust government run or remains as privately operated big health. Physicians, except top performers old timers are already whipped into employee mode, and if they don’t accept they are out of luck. The pipeline of foreign physicians that want to remain in the big metro areas is huge, where there is a shortage is in the boondocks. So there really is no choice.

  13. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    Hey Dickweed, we already have Medicare for all. Just keep flipping burgers and we’ll let you know when it’s your turn.

Clinton won the popular vote by 6 million votes in New York and California. She LOST the popular vote by 3 million votes in the other 48 states. Maybe this time Kamala Biden will win New York and California by 10 million votes? Won’t matter.

    This is the measuring stick of the coming election.

  17. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    New York and California are an analog for the college admission felons. “Hey!!!!!! We paid our money, we paid our bribes, we paid every time HRC had her hand out. Why didn’t our candidate get admitted? No Fair!”

    Did any of you d!pshits comparing New Jersey property taxes to Maryland property taxes take into account that Maryland counties levy extra taxes on their residents that in many cases is over 3% of your taxable income?

    Also FYI, there are towns in New Jersey that have traditionally had very low taxes on million dollar homes like Harding, Far Hills, and Bedminster. The problem is that in these towns people have been doubling or tripling the size or tearing down these cheap tax houses and then they get adjusted.

    73 Baileys Mill Rd in Harding is an example of this. Sold in 2013 for $1.2 mill, recently on the market for $1.95 mill – 10 acres. Completely renovated. Taxes 10,000

  31. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    I noticed yesterday that JJ just sold his Long Island house a couple months ago. I guess his Sandy subsidies ran out, because the taxes went from $2700 in 2017 to $10K in 2018. So he sold his tiny property LI house for $535K or so and dumped his $10K tax bill. Now he lives in a brick mansion with an $11K tax bill.

  32. The Original NJ ExPat says:

    JJ’s LI house looked good, completely renovated, probably showed real well. It’s hard not to imagine it being half filled up with water though.

    Pat,

    American comedy died around 1995 when the last talented of 1988- 1993 SNL crew were forced out. When a non-talented sideman like Adam Sandler becomes huge mega star then comedy dies. Stupid grins and baby talk replaced writing..and everyone that came after started doing same. Sandler era went on far too long but comedy did remerge in urban comedy like Chris Rock. Also, some of the best non-PC humor is the man above, Robert Smigel. Way too absurd and gross to be mainstream. He did tidbit skits like Duo and other animation bits like “Friends episode during Apocalypse” and Shazang (brilliant mock of 60s cartoons). He alter ego is Triumph Insult Comic dog. What a smart way to diffuse PC crowd. A treasure trove of skits like Star Wars, Michael Jackson trial and Quebec winter carnival. One of best lines – obese man, with 3 necks, speaking French (angrily) and Triumph says “I thought Babar lived in Paris?” Pure gold. More recently, he went after PC millennials at UNH. That has some great moments as well. I also thought Ali G. (before the Borat movie) was awesome series. Sacha Baron Cohen has a brass sack. Mostly I just don’t know how he kept a straight face.

  38. xolepa says:

    I think the perfect place for Ottoman to live in currently is Crimea. He should experience and watch as all the native population is being displayed (permanently) by newcomers to the tune of half a million Russians coming in from mostly areas of Siberia. Moscow has hand picked hardened communist types from all over their empire and settled them into that peninsula. Even the native Russian population is grumbling as the newbies are getting plum jobs and benefits. Only in the finest proletariat tradition!

    It’s the latest iteration of Akcja Wisla. Just ask Grim and Original.

    Wealth is the product of man’s capacity to think. ~ Ayn Rand

  41. grim says:

    Polish socialism was fantastic.

    Rationing, everything was rationed. You want the luxury of buying a refrigerator? You better buddy up to the local socialists, err, communists for your ticket to be able to buy one. Butter? Sugar? Flour? Rationed. Car? Rationed. You don’t like your socialist bloc housing? Too fucking bad. You don’t like your job? Too fucking bad. The joke of polish alcoholism is rooted in this. What’s the point of working hard? It doesn’t matter. What’s the point of even working? You show up drunk, and go home to your concrete prison, you get paid the same either way. Productivity? Zero. Accountability? Zero. Just like the public sector today.

    The only people that cried about transitioning to capitalism were the communist drunks, that now had to actually work, and the communist connected – who received special favors by being connected. Plenty of ex-party connected people were simply handed public enterprises to be their own private companies. Plenty of connected people were put in place in the judiciary too.

  42. xolepa says:

    Yep, Grim. That’s the way it was..and still is. How did all those Communists become wealthy Oligarchs?

    They worked oh so hard. Of course.

    Ottodog knows better.

    My grandfather was stabbed, caught and imprisoned by the Red Army during the communist revolution. He was fighting for Ukrainian liberation. He escaped the night before he was to be executed. One generation passes and he gets caught by the Communists during WWII and thrown into jail, again. This time for just being Ukrainian. He escapes jail again the night before he was to be executed.

    Grandfather eventually gets to the west and America in 1949, just a chest full of clothes and pictures to his name. Works his butt off and by 1951 buys himself and family a 3 unit apartment house. In Jersey. Never learned to speak English.

    Never wanted to step back to the old country, either. He would have been shot on sight.

    Same thing with my Kuma (godmother of my son) and her grandfather. In his eighties, about 30 years ago, decides he wants to visit to his old town in Galicia. Goes to visit, locals tell him he must get out by night, because Commies still want him after 40 years.

    Aah, Ottodog. Old times were the best!

    BTW, are AOC and Bozo O’Rourke just plagiarizing the 1990 global warming trope?

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) _ A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.

    Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ″eco- refugees,′ ′ threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP.

    He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.

    As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations, Brown told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday.

    Coastal regions will be inundated; one-sixth of Bangladesh could be flooded, displacing a fourth of its 90 million people. A fifth of Egypt’s arable land in the Nile Delta would be flooded, cutting off its food supply, according to a joint UNEP and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study.
