This is a topic that has always intrigued me because there can be so much variation in people's definition. Sometimes people say if you can get the loan for a big house and lease for a BMW, you must be rich. Others say, if you can afford a nice vacation, big house, and a nice car with little debt you are rich, even if you spend everything you have. Some people believe there's a difference between rich and wealthy, where wealthy is actually owning assets and having little to no debt. For example, owning property, stocks, bonds, maybe a picasso, etc What do you consider rich? Do you believe being rich is an image? Or a person who's loaded can live like a regular guy, wearing normal clothes and driving a Camry. Feel free to make any and all view points. I'd be happy to read them!
