    How much do Barristers earn?
    Depends on experience, and the set you're in.

    look if you want to peak your money payments in young age {i mean ufrom 20-30}then athletes-artists and geniuses are in this category, in order to get rich by the "university" {and if you ever get rich} you must wait until your 40s-50s to get seriously rich,cause till 21-2 say you get your degree then you go into the first step of business world where is to get from three up to five years of work experience and actually understand the "real world " and the money you can make.. in these years you salary will be good {i mean you are not going to hungry} but u will not earn more than 3-4 thousand a month.. after this 3-5 years then you can increase your money significantly by earning around 70-100 thousans per year and as the years go by you can increase your money according to your skills and your character {and of your opportunities }until millions.. these in business type categories ,about doctors and staff each different.. but the usual is that after a lot of hard work and by the age of at least 35 you will be able to earn MONEY..
    I agree with a lot of what you say. Although, I'd say that there are several people earning more than £3000 - £4000 a month within 5 years of graduating from University.

    Do you happen to have any ballpark figures?

    For example what would a newly-qualified barrister earn in a well-paying set?

    How about after 5 years? And 10 years?

    I'm sure that it will depend, but do you have any rough figures?

    it depends...one thing has confused me about it.. are the tax including in these money or you have to pay the tax from this amount..cause then,say your first year you earn 25,000 then £1,598 is what comes in your bank account every month,its big diference..what u think? about the 3000-4000 a month you said,i dont know,maybe in banking is that way but in most of the "business" degrees i find it very difficult to earnt this money for example in your second year or third.. usually the five years is the milestone where you can double your earnings and go to 60,000-70,000 per year..dont know...

    Ah I see, £3000 -£4000 a month after tax and national insurance is harder.

    I think that's about £50,000 - £70,000 per annum, although I do think that amount can realistically be earned within 5 years of graduating from university.

    To earn that 2nd year may be a little tough, but again I think it can realistically be achieved in my opinion.

    Self-employment is bigger than unemployment and accounts for far more people than any given career in the UK (over 4 million versus a bit under 3 million).

    If you take self-employment as a proxy for entrepreneurship, well, it isn't very pretty.

    The richest people in my school (the types who would show off their dad's patek phillip watches :facepalm2:) had industrialist parents, the typical take a loan, set up a factory/trade, grow and eventually get filthy rich types. Then came people who worked for these guys in their business in top positions, making a smalllll fraction of the money they earn.

    49^6 = 13 841 287 201
    It's not that simple...

    49x49x49x49x49x49 gives an extremely high number, but when you've removed a number you don't use it again. And the order of numbers doesn't matter....

    So 49x48x47x46x45x44 is the number of ordered solutions.

    But I could have 1,2,3,4,5,6 or 2,1,3,4,5,6 or 6,5,4,3,2,1 (there are 720 permutations of just 6 numbers)

    So the number of combinations of 6 numbers from 49 numbers, is 49C6 (C being a statistics function)

    49C6=13,983,816

    Wow, I never thought I'd find a use for statistics...



    But thats all completely off topic...

    Erm depends, mostly manufacturing, one of the wealthiest in my class built tankers and ships and also has a huge shipping business, another had business in pharmaceuticals. Most common trade was import and export, I don't how that works.

    I think hedge fund managers/traders have a high average income yes, but the rich of the rich tend to come from retail and mining (to name a couple of industries that spring to mind) where the people at the very top accumulate masses of wealth.

    Entrepreneurs too?
    Don't generalize or even dare setting hedge fund managers a step below other entrepreneurs.

    And at the other end of the spectrum thousands of hedge fund managers are earning just their salaries with dwindling management fees.

    Take a look at forbes, you won't see many hedge fund managers in comparison to other occupations
