How much would you need to make, say, for a family of four, to be reasonably healthy, happy, and safe?
I'm looking for a minimum number. This is a per-year, household figure. I won't post your answer, in order to protect anonymity. But go ahead and fill out a comment-thing, and I'll collect the numbers and report back the averages and stuff.
Yes, I know there are ambiguities in the question. ("But what is 'reasonably safe'?" "Do we have health insurance?" -- I'll leave things up to you, because they rather get at the point, don't they? You may think, hey, the world has made it into the last century without health insurance, or you may think you need a major medical policy, or perhaps you can't survive without a full-service HMO. It's up to you.)
I know there are regional differences. If you're in an exceptional area -- as we are, in trendy SoFla -- please let me know what region you're in.
Don't over-think it.
No wrong answers: You're not going to be judged.* I'm just dang curious. I won't post your figures; I will post other relevant comments/clarifying questions if you like.
And I'll follow-up on Friday, with the average and such. I think this will be interesting.**
