YOU DON’T SAY: “Lure of great wealth affects career choices.”

Plus, this shocker: “The bigger the prize, the greater the effort that people are making to get it.” Someone rewrite the economics textbooks, stat! (Via Ann Althouse),

UPDATE: Reader Byron Scott emails: “The linked article ‘Lure of great wealth affects career choices’ is all about middle-class people moving into upper-class incomes. Just a month ago (you know, prior to the Democrats taking power) all I remember hearing about was how the great divide between the poor and the wealthy was widening. It’s amazing how quickly things turn! Those Democrats must be better than even they tried to convince us they are.”

Heh.
