How to feel like a millionaire – even if you’re not

Wednesday Jan. 26, 1944

“I hear your pocketbook suffers a money deficit most of the time,” my grandpa wrote to my mother. “We’d rather supplement you a dollar, loan or no loan. So I have changed it to $1.50. If the girl who has fallen heir the other day to some 25 million dollars would all of a sudden get .50 extra, she would pass right out, poor soul.” I’m not sure why my parents needed a loan of a dollar, let alone $1.50, but my grandpa’s way ahead of the game in understanding the psychology of wealth. Actually, I’m pretty sure no one but Scrooge McDuck would be overwhelmed to get an extra $.50! Enjoy this take on Scrooge’s famous “money swim.”
