I remember seeing it said somewhere in a rundown of government figures during some debate regarding taxes/IRS that anyone earning more than $75,000 per year was considered "rich."

To carry out this discussion farther, I once read that wealth is an abstraction, measured in terms of things besides possessions and money. For example, if you have good health, a loving family, and food on the table, you could be considered weathly. Being rich is a more tangible quality...having lots of possessions and money. So, to a large extent, most of us are wealthy!
