They're gonna be pissed

January 2008

They're gonna be pissed:

What happens when we pay everybody in the world a living wage, and give 'em all a chance to own an SUV and a house in the suburbs? How many worlds would it take to float that boat? How pissed are they going to be when they realize "lifestyles of the rich and famous don't scale," in fact the lifestyle of the typical middle-class American is not sustainable.

— Jon Lebowski, State of the World 2008
