A great article on how rich folks can get clued in on the fallacies some of them have been saying (or thinking).

A question for everyone:

How do you define "rich"? What does it mean to you to be rich?

I am well aware of social definition of 'Rich' but in my opinion, when I think through it: Richness is a state of contentment beyond certain means of survival and amusement.

In my opinion up to an extent you might need money to meet your day to day needs but then there is no final limit on luxury. Then you stay poor as long as you have 'want' for more. Then it's will to power. The 'Rich' and 'Powerful' are so intricately connected in world. If it's not desire, want and ever lasting boredom, then the one who is most content and calm is richest of all!
