Beyond First World Problems

First world problems: Problems complained of by those living in a wealthy, industrialized nation that third worlders would probably roll their eyes at. Things like which car to take when going out to dinner, or where to go out to dinner, or what to order when going out to dinner.

The other day I was chatting with a gent who was fretting about getting his tax information together for his accountant. He was bragging complaining that a stock with a large capital gain was forcing him to forage around for capital losses to offset it.

That’s not just a First World Problem; that’s a “1% problem.”
