When "rich" people get money they tend to save or invest it.

Not always true, but mostly true for those who make themselves rich. And mostly not true for those whose parents/grandparents made them rich.

When "poor" people get money they tend to spend it, often because they have a real need to.

I have to disagree with the word "need". Anyone, and I mean anyone, in the world, who earns anything, can simply look around and find someone who earns 20% less than you. The smart ones look at those people and LIVE LIKE THEY DO. That's how you become rich.
