What is “Rich” in America?


The WSJ breaks down the numbers of what it takes to be wealthy in the USA:

“The top 1% of U.S. households have a net worth above $6.8 million or at least $521,000 in income, according to data from the Federal Reserve and the Tax Policy Center in Washington. The cutoffs for the top 5% are $1.9 million in net worth, or $209,000 in income.”

Those are higher numbers than I previously had seen  . . .
