What is a rich person?

In terms of $$ net assets.
Try not to get into other esoterica forms of wealth, you know like knowledge and stuff some of the people on the right lack and envy.

I say anything over 500K. I was going to say 250K but yeah, being rich would start at the 1/2 mil asset mark. I guess with income you would never want to be on either extreme during a life time. Being flat broke doesn't cut it, and being over rich warrants fear of loosing said assets or ones life.

Well if you live in southern California and have a 3 bedroom home in a middle class area, 2 cars, 401K, etc. you are rich. 500k? That is how much your home alone costs in that area.

$1,000,000 can go pretty quick. If you have $2,000,000 or more in net assets, you should never be broke nor want again, ever.
