I am not an accountant. I have no idea if this calculation resembles a formal calculation of net worth. All I can say is that I have stayed consistent to my own method over time. I only include assets and liabilities that have an exact, definite dollar value. So the value of personal possessions, for instance, is not included.
The second chart shows the best-fit linear and exponential net worth curves, extrapolated into the future.
Exponential time-to-double = 608 days
Did you get anything out of this? Then write to me.
I got this idea from Sam "Abulsme" Minter. He has lots of interesting stuff on his web site, abulsme.com.
