Meanwhile In The Real World, Americans Sell Hair, Breast Milk And Eggs To Make Ends Meet

Tyler Durden's picture




 

With a stunning 41% of global wealth in the hands of a mere 0.7% of the world's population, the lower- and middle-class continue to fight amongst themselves for the scraps to maintain a decent standard of living. In the US, with the home-equity ATM now closed (and maybe EBT interrupted), those struggling to make ends meet are turning to the only "asset" they have left that is unencumbered (for now) - their body parts.

As Bloomberg reports, since the beginning of 2011, 'hair,' 'eggs,' or 'kidney' have been among the top four autofill results for the Google search query, 'I want to sell my...;' and "the fact that people even explore it indicates that there are still a lot of people worried about their financial outlook," as hair, breast milk and eggs are doubling as ATMs for more and more cash-strapped Americans.

As one analyst noted,

“This is very much unlike every other recovery that we’ve had. It’s going to be a slow-grinding, very frustrating recovery.”

Which should come as no surprise given the massive wealth inequalities...

Personal wealth varies across adults for many reasons.

 

Some individuals with little wealth may be at early stages in their careers, with little chance or motivation to accumulate assets. Others may have suffered business setbacks or personal misfortunes, or live in parts of the world where opportunities for wealth creation are severely limited.

 

At the other end of the spectrum, there are individuals who have acquired a large fortune through a combination of talent, hard work or simply being in the right place at the right time.

The wealth pyramid above captures these differences in striking detail. It has a large base of low wealth holders, alongside upper tiers occupied by progressively fewer people.

 

Via Bloomberg,

Hair, breast milk and eggs are doubling as automated teller machines for some cash-strapped Americans such as April Hare.

 

...

 

I was just trying to find ways to make money, and I remembered Jo from ‘Little Women,’ and she sold her hair,” the 35-year-old from Atlanta said. “I’ve always had lots of hair, but this is the first time I’ve actually had the idea to sell it because I’m in a really tight jam right now.”

 

The mother of two posted pictures of her 18-inch auburn mane on www.buyandsellhair.com, asking at least $1,000 and receiving responses within hours. Hare, who also considered selling her breast milk, joins others exploring unconventional ways to make ends meet as the four-year-old economic expansion struggles to invigorate the labor market and stimulate incomes.

 

In all but two quarters since the beginning of 2011, “hair,” “eggs,” or “kidney” have been among the top four autofill results for the Google search query, “I want to sell my...,” ...

 

While Americans can legally sell hair, breast milk and eggs, the sale and purchase of a kidney in the U.S. is against the law.

 

...

 

“If you’ve been unemployed for years, if you’re on food stamps and you’ve had trouble getting by, I can totally see you being very economically desperate,” Colas said. “I don’t think a lot of people sell their kidneys. I do think a lot of people in desperation do that search to say, ‘If worse comes to worst what could I do?’”

 

...

 

The average donor is about 27 years old, and 78 percent have a college degree or are pursuing one, Williams said. More than half of donor applications come through an online resource.

 

The Internet is probably responsible for much of the increased interest in cashing in on body parts, Becker said. Online search engines and exchanges make communications between “buyers and sellers of things like organs or hair much easier,” he said.

Perhaps the last paragraph sums up the US citizenry's perspective better than any other:

“I’ve been growing my hair out for maybe a little over two years, and I just decided now was the time since I lost my job,” MacDonald said. “It doesn’t cost anything to grow your hair out and sell it for money. It’s basically profit with very little work. Anything you can do, I’m sure people are willing to do it.”

The Obama Economy has EVEN crushed African-Americans, as finally admitted by fellow hardcore liberals:

http://www.mediaite.com/tv/tavis-smiley-black-people-are-not-better-off-...

As we reported this week, PBS radio host Tavis Smiley debated Fox’s Sean Hannity over the government shutdown. Another interesting nugget from that interview is when Smiley asserted that the lot of black Americans has not improved under this current presidency.

“Are black Americans better off five years into the Obama presidency?” Hannity bluntly asked the political radio host.

“Let me answer your question very forthrightly: No, they are not,” Smiley responded. “The data is going to indicate, sadly, that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category.”

http://www.mediaite.com/online/cornel-west-attacks-al-sharpton-bonafide-...

Cornel West Attacks Al Sharpton: ‘Bonafide House Negro of the Obama Plantation’

“Brother Martin himself, I think, would’ve been turning over in his grave,” West said of the event. “[King would have wanted] people to talk about Wall Street criminality, he wants people to talk about war crimes, or drones dropping bombs on innocent people,” he asserted.

“Instead,” he lamented, “we saw the coronation of the bonafide house negro of the Barack Obama plantation, our dear brother Al Sharpton.” West went further declaring that Sharpton’s decline was “supported by [MSNBC analyst] Michael Dyson and others who’ve prostituted themselves in a very ugly and vicious way.”

Well,  tough to compare.     But, if you include unlimited (near) food, gladiator battles, cheap bling, porn, hot-water, and antibiotics the US debt-serfs have it pretty good.

The US perhaps has created the best feudal society ever, and that's quite an accomplishment.   As long as the peasants continue to "know their place" I think we'll be fine.

All the wealth to a small handful of people, and the sheep live on the elite's crumbs.

But clearly the sheep like it that way -- they keep voting for it.

In an 'american' society, one gets rich by satisfying the 'american' middle class aka WeThePeople.

This is how it works in an 'american' world.

Once again, this AnAnonymous commenter, as a Chinese citizenism citizen, has produced what Chinese citizenism citizens mass produce: cheap propaganda.

I've always wondered how prostitution was the world's oldest profession; how could you pay an ancient whore, unless you did some other activity to earn a good or wage to pay for her delicate secrets?

giving head is still the most lucrative, ahem, manual skill ther is out there. there are very low barriers to entry and competition is limited despite the number of participants in the market. a blowjob a day to keep the bill collector away. more girls should consider it.

Head would be an oral skill, like reading a Teleprompter, while a hand-job could be more appropriately described as manual labor.

It’s going to be a slow-grinding, very frustrating recovery.

Still not willing to give up on the "recovery" fairytale, eh?

Don’t any of you  remember who signed the Budget Control Act of 2011?

Obama signed it.  

That was his opportunity to honor his campaign pledge to only tax the RICH.

His credibility would be much higher if he had Vetoed the tax increases on the non-rich.

 

In doing so, the president said, "Is this the deal I would have preferred? No. But this compromise does make a serious down payment on the deficit reduction we need, and gives each party a strong incentive to get a balanced plan done before the end of the year."[13] 

 

Harry Reid AND Boehner and many House members signed it, too.

 

Now they’re trying to protect their ‘jobs’ by assuming we’re clueless sheep. 

 

Fool us twice, shame on US!

Small business creation...bullish!  This probably justifies doubling IRS staffing to make sure all nickel-dime sales and bartering are accounted for and taxed.

That one makes it for the day.

'Americans' want to sell the doubt that taxation in a voluntary act in an 'american' society.

Quite often, when it comes to organs harvesting, in other societies, it is a forceful act with squads adbucting people, taking out the organ and leaving the abducted to survive as possible if possible.

'Americans' know a lot about those squads since they created them and keep operating so many of them.

The miracle of an 'american' society is that this kind of taxation is voluntary. 'Americans' rush to the ticket office to sell their organs.

Aint life sweet in an 'american' society?

With an 'american' soul, mind and heart, let 'americans' repell that insane law banning organs sales. People own their own body and should be able to sell their organs if they will.

I see trees of kidney........ red hearts too
I see em harvest..... for me and for you
And I think to myself.... what a wonderful world,
An 'american' world.

Did those wokked dogs jump in voluntary?
If so, they did it because it is an 'american' society.

'American' dogs...

Perhaps those wokked dogs were just fleeing the stinking mountains of Chinese Citizenism roadside feces. 

Not wanting to live like a Chinese Citizenism shitizen, they preferentiated to die with some shred of honor.

You know, jumping from the flying pan into the file.

Typical Chinese citizenism offuscation and denialry displayed by AnAnonymystical propagator, pushing blame for dog wokkery onto the wokked dog while accepting benefitial aspects of canine cuisine.

Chinese citizenism citizens are the new nobility of the world, living off many, many priviledges...

Making numbers... Once again, 'americans' lumping the lower class with the middle class to push the middle class' best interests...
A crowd is a lot of people indeed, and since the sufferings of the middle class is just fantasy with the confusion made between former members of the middle class being degraded from middle to lower.

The picture cant even hide that.

Stopping to call people who are no longer middle class would solve the problem.

Because once they were middle class and now are lower class does not mean they are entitled to middle class status for a lifetime.

Oh, wait, that is exactly what 'americans' think, 'american' middle class should be for life...

Made me laugh. Chinese citizenism citizens can not stand definitions of words. They need perpetual redefining to make their woobly stuff stay together.

Chinese citizenism citizens are isolated from reality as shown by the comment. They can not even write a verbose comment with three or four ideas with it, without issuing massive contradictions, classifying the piece in what Chinese citizenism citizens do the best: AnAnonymous cheap propaganda.

Umm, you're no longer allowed to get as rich as you can in an 'american' society?

Djeee, looks like the good old days when hiding that in a no growth society, the rich man's gains are the poor's man losses are over.

Ah, when the Indians and their lands were there to hide that little inconvenient fact, it was so good.

It was when 'america' was free, free as free it is in an 'american' conception.

What a waste of resources Chinese citizenism citizens are. None of their words bring something other than lies, gross distortion of reality, ever increasing denial etc.

Ah, when the Indians and their lands were there to hide that little inconvenient fact, it was so good.

This from the same guy priorly quoting runs for the hills lyrics of British citizenism band Ironed Maiden glorifying hunting Indians for sport. Typical hypocritizenism one must expect of Chinese citizenism.

Of course, having a discrete approach to responsibility, that is claiming responsibility for rewarding consequences and rejecting responsibility for adverse consequences is 'AnAnonymist' behavior.

Run to the hills lyrics are that?

JKC, one could have thought they reported the common 'american' vision...

Chasing the redskins back to their holes
Fighting them at their own game

Marvellous thing is that the song was written before 'americans' started their hunting season on muslims.

That song captures part of the 'american' psyche. Chasing the "enemy" back to their holes is somehow the way 'americans' perceive themselves when warring...

Caught in lies, feigning surprise, it is so Chinese citizenish. Ah, memory, memory... No surprise Chinese citizenism citizens hate on memorization, on the past, the past is coming back full fledge at them, them and their drivel lies...

Still spamming your chain of JKC* Chinese citizenism fastfood franchises? Funny as a farting sea elephant.

Typical of AnAnonymist hypocritizenism. Pour admonishmentations on US 'american' citizens about the Indians, but can't get enough of British citizenism heavy metals Ironed Maidens when reveling in the glory of hunting Indians for sport.

In Chinese citizenism, extirpatings of aborigenicals is all about the glory, the glory.

Marvellous thing is that the song was written before 'americans' started their hunting season on muslims.

Best. Perhaps number one Chinese citizenism fan of Ironed Maidens can suggesting them sing praises of hunting Muslims for sport new song gloriously.
