keyword wealth shock. Possibly you read this today? Tied to earlier death? 50% of those who experienced it died pretty soon after. Which is what has made headlines. I dont find that surprising. However this /other/ bit of fndings?
"About 1 in 4 people in the study had a wealth shock, which researchers defined as a loss of 75 percent or more in net worth over two years. The average loss was about $100,000"

25% of people lose their life's savings? Suddenly? THAT is a story! What The F!

less important but Daaaaaamn is that the average life's savings is only 100,000. I mean that's how many years salary and you're gonna retire on that IF all goes well? WTF
