Upper Class NYC Glam-SAHMs: Glamorous Stay At Home Moms

Who is out in Central Park with their kids? Glam-SAHMs: Glamorous Stay At Home Moms with advanced elite degrees whose husbands manage hedge funds and private equity. On the bright side they are having lots of kids. You might be surprised if you read the whole thing.

The big families and stay-at-home wives of these masters of the universe seem like a form of conspicuous consumption by alpha males. But they also want heirs. Imagine how much more enthused they'll become about big families once they can guarantee having all super kids. The next generation of hedge fund managers will jump on CRISPR-Cas9 offspring genetic editing to make their kids capable of functioning at high levels. No more regression to the mean with disappointing children. When genetic editing takes out most of the risk of having dud disappointing kids upper class family sizes will go up.

But capability is not everything: often, those very smart people who are also very ambitious and attracted to power, are absollutely ruthless. The hedge fund elite is probably not more intelligent than the top academic talent outside the financial industry, but the financial industry is where power is, and attraction to power is an additional factor in the DNA of the hedge fund elite. This is a speculation from my part but it might be that the DNA of the Silicon Valley elite might be significantly different from the DNA of the financial elite, even if the numerical IQ scores are the same, since the kind of power they are attracted to, is also different.
