Comparing incomes: Mitt Romney and you

Man Weighing Gold, 1515-20 Adriaen Isenbrant, Netherlandish (Metropolitan Museum)

Slate put an “interesting” calculator up yesterday that puts things in perspective:

Mitt Romney released his 2010 tax return on Monday. His total income for the year was listed as $21.6 million, more than one-half of which came from capital gains. How does that stack up against your income? Enter your annual income below to find out how long it would have taken Mitt Romney to earn the same amount of money.

It also calculates how many centuries you would likely have to work to match Mr. Romney’s 2010 income.
