Great tips for unemployed bankers. Stop flying business, start ironing your own shirts, get your kids to public schools. I’m taking out my little violin.

  1. You know, this is good, but I think they’re missing a few things that might really help the average wealthy investment banker take the sting out of tightening his belt. For example:

    – You could put your spare change into a piggy bank. I know it might sound odd, but that spare change can add up after a while!
    – Skip Starbucks and brew your own coffee. You can really save a lot on a daily basis by not forking over for that big mocha latte every day, and just brewing coffee at home. Better yet, make your wife do it while you’re making her iron your shirts! And it’ll be the perfect way to cut the extra calories out of your diet!
    – If you are not particularly fond of one or more of your younger children, there is a great way to kill two birds with one stone by cutting costs at home on food AND the mouths you need to feed. I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child well nursed is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee or a ragout. Not to mention the guilt you will spare yourself by not having to put the little tyke into a private school. It may sound radical, but it’s just a modest proposal.

    Good luck!
