"A group of people given to chronic traveling at the expense of long-term job stability or a permanent residence. Tend to have doomed and extremely expensive phone-call relationships with people named Serge or Ilyana. Tend to discuss frequent-flyer programs at parties."
--Douglas Coupland, novel Generation X, 1991
"Alex's boss, unversed in the ways of the Poverty Jet Set, failed to understand why trudging into the office at noon with luggage and a shrug of, 'There was a web special to Tokyo,' was a good excuse for missing the eng all-hands meeting."

Originally coined by Douglas Coupland, the poverty jetset are young people who manage to travel the world and live it up on very little money.
Tom and Jenn have been in the poverty jetset for years - even when they were in the Peace Corps, they still went Phucket and Singapore!
