Showing that you’re better than your perceived peers is hard work.

Poor

Expensive-looking stuff that’s actually cheap.

Middle class

Shinier versions of what all your friends have, but not anything that none of them have (like a personal assistant).

Upper Middle Class

Vaguely worldly but still expensive experiences (like a 10-day meditation retreat that costs $5,000).

Nouveau Riche

Expensive-looking stuff that’s actually expensive.

Old Money Rich

Cheap-looking stuff that’s actually expensive.

Silicon Valley Rich

Cheap-looking stuff that’s actually cheap.
