I rounded up my income and still: 54 seconds.
Warren Buffett makes $13.5 billion a year. And though I know what numbers are, and what fractions are, and what a fraction of a fraction is...It's still hard for me to ever imagine how different we are, as humans, and what it means for him to make a lot and for me to make a little.
So it's useful to have a tool that shows me in terms of bananas.
As in, Warren Buffett spending $700,000 = Me buying a banana. I know what one of those things feels like! So now I guess I know how it feels to be Warren Buffett, too.
