The half-dosage thing has been going on for years and years in certain cirlces. It's nothing new.

The hour-glass visual is a bit unfortunate since it suggests the nation is evenly split between haves and have-nots. In reality, we have a tiny layer of elite rich who own and control more and more of the nation's wealth. We have a substantial number of people officially recognized as poor. In between, we have the sinking middle class, made up of people who have less than they used to. When a "have less" becomes a "have not" is a matter of perspective.

I grew up drinking powered milk... That is, I grew up drinking Nestles' Quick in my powered milk because I hate the taste of milk. So the concept of watering milk seems strange to me when powered milk is cheaper and can be mixed to any strength you like.

As for half doses-- I'll just take full doses until I run out. Then I'll die. Being miserable any longer seems useless.

Or, as the guys at Goldman Sachs classify themselves, the Haves and the Have Yachts.
