On being poor

Brad DeLong gazes long and hard at the laments and sad plight of people attempting to make it on $450,000 per year who may see their marginal taxes rise to Clinton-era levels. In so doing, he takes us back a few years, to John Scalzi's 2005 "poem (for that is what it is)," Being Poor. Sad, beautiful, and although I've never been poorer than a poor college student, I have no doubt it is true.
