Just how much gold do those leprechauns have stashed, anyway?
Here’s something we’ve often wondered: Just how much richer would we actually be if we ever did find the pot of gold leprechauns have hidden at the end of the rainbow?
If you listen to the survey results from Spectrem Group’s online investor center Millionaire Corner, we’d be rich! Forty-one percent of respondents put the value right at $1 million, while 6 percent guessed it’d be worth about $500,000 and another 13 percent think $100,000 is more like it.
We choose to share the sunny optimism of the 11 percent who estimate the pot of gold would have us raking in $1 billion — although we wouldn’t exactly feel unlucky scoring $25 million (10 percent) or even $5 million (18 percent).
Come to think of it, we’d be feeling the luck of the Irish if that pot held enough gold for us to buy the bar a couple rounds of Guinness. That, friends, would be priceless.
