1. Haha, nice cartoon. It would be interesting to assume a savings rate and to plot out to 65. I suspect like a short term stock plot you’d find that the initial drop or jump isn’t nearly as dramatic as it appears up close.

    • Really, I’m showing the starting point, and the numbers are less accurate and more of a commentary. The college grads are going to make a big comeback.

  2. Yes, over time these numbers change dramatically! If you’re going to the academy, West Point, or Annapolis, that’s probably the best military choice for your net worth and safety. Enlisting is a different beast; short term your net worth is higher, but you get paid so little for the valor of your work. And eventually if you want to make real good money, you’re going to have to make use of the GI Bill whether you transition to civilian life or not.
