Default Define rich.

Obviously lots of factors involved.

For someone that's single with student loan debt, what would you say is rich?

For someone that's single with no debt, what would you say is rich?

For a family of 1, 2, 3 kids etc., what would you say is rich (combined income)?

For me "rich" means multimillions...not just one or two mill either, my parents have a couple mill and I would never label them as "rich"

More like in the $5 mill and over range...you're officially "rich"

Default Re: Define rich.

single no debt you'd have to be making maybe half a mil to get anywhere close to my conception of 'rich'

with debt, i guess a bit more

with a whole family, i dunno, close to seven figure salary?



but 'rich' being the extremely relative concept that it is and considering the bloated and still bloating ratio between the richest of the rich and the poorest of the poor... it would seem the definition would be narrowing and becoming increasingly exclusive


most importantly though... why do you ask?

Rich is having millions of dollars without necessarily knowing you'll have it come a year or two later. Wealthy means you're pretty much set for life, and your kids too.

It totally depends on where you are and what you know.

What's rich to some people in the poorest villages in the world isn't anywhere near what people would define being rich as over here.

Right. Because I'm looking for a definition instead of a numerical value.

Rich is a star pro athlete; wealthy is the man who signs his check.
