1. Most americans think "rich" starts...
..." X% above what I make".

Plenty of people living middle-class lifestyles in Alabama think that a middle-class income in NY City is "rich"... (and the NY family can't imagine getting by on what the first family earns) but it doesn't change the fact that both have comparable lifestyles.

By my perspective... there are plenty of places in the US where 150k makes you pretty comfortable. Upper-middle-class certainly. But I can't think of many where you're "rich".
