    Howdy There says

    I base my personal finances on Keynesian theory

    Really? You kite checks and force other people to accept them when you run short of money? Do they believe your promise that you will someday save up the money to make the checks good? instead of kiting more checks to pay past bad checks?

    Rin is planning to be a neo-feudal rentier living off the dividends of tobacco and utility stocks, while pursuing his own intellectual interests as a Renaissance Man. i.e. he will be retired. He is not planning on climbing corporate ladders.

    In his case, financially and logistically support the women taking care of the kids' daily needs, the interaction with kids may well inspire him to new worthy technology pursuits and artistic output; instead of "opportunity cost," he may well be receiving new opportunity from those real interactions with kids and younger women.

    The game is rigged against the average male wage slaves. However, Rin, you are supposed to be one who can afford to be a Renaissance Man; i.e. who has staff taking care of his needs, and have the resources to do the big thinking and live life experiences that the mere wage slaves would admire and fantasize about. Some of Goethe's best pieces were inspired by his personal relationship experiences, real courtship and pursuit of hard-to-obtain women much younger than himself. If Goethe wrote a piece about boinking wax effigy, I don't think the piece would have resulted in the popularity and acclaim of Marienbad Elegy. The dude was 73, proposing marriage to an 18 year old probable virgin (via his patron, the Grand Duke of Saxe-Weimar), for her intellect and beauty; the poem describing the old man's feeling after rejection was the master piece. You need the real relational experience to write inspiring pieces.

    Speaking of Goethe as your model of a Renaissance Man, aren't you forgetting the first thing Faust did after trading in his soul for unlimited power? He fell in love and impregnated a teenager. He didn't go hire a hooker, LOL.
