One Consolation For We Slackers

There comes every now and then an economic report that makes you go: 'Wait, what?'
Today's one of those days. The Federal Reserve does a survey of consumer finances every three years. The most recent came out yesterday, and it shows median income was down almost 8 percent.
But there's one nugget that has economists scratching their heads. Turns out the more money and education you had, the bigger your losses.
