Re: Thomas Claburn - Define Wealthy
It's probably easiest to define as what percent your earnings fall into. I would argue that anyone in the top 2% of earnings is 'rich' (over $400k/year in the US)+. Of course, a lot depends on geography as well, but I have yet to see a geographically weighted earnings percentage chart.
Just as a side note, in San Francisco a family of four is considered below poverty if they earn less than about $105k*, which in some parts of the US would make them rich....
