OK, I can understand your math.
However, what if the 2k was absolute disposable income? Should they not buy any of their (wants) if it cost 1/8 of this disposable income? People have to enjoy the fruits of their labor once in a while because some people will never have 100k in the bank and their still happy with life. Remember, you can't take the money with you when you die.
What if the 2k was absolute disposable income? The person pays $225 retail for the Yeezy with the intentions to resell. With resell prices being $700-800 on average, they stand to make a profit of $375-475, which is roughly a 167-211%. Therefore, increasing the persons bank account balance from 2k to $2,375-$2,475, ONE STEP CLOSER to reaching 100k.
Again, your opinion is noted. However, it varies depending on the circumstances.
