YEET  MAGAZINE - Money - Wealth - How To Be Rich Not Poor

By Kevin Yue | YEET MAGAZINE  | Posted on September 17, 2021 at 7:32 am

What is the psychology behind wealthy people who don't spend their money and act as middle class?

There are 3 types of rich people:

  • The Authentic Rich (Rich from father to son)
  • The New Rich (Built their own wealth)
  • The Rich by Accident

The Authentic Rich are those who go to Harvard, Oxford and the like from father to son. Their families have had money for generations and have made it grow over generations. They tend to look like this:


The nouveau riche are people who have earned a lot in their lifetime. They tend to be CEOs of very profitable industries.

Here is Mark Zuckerberg in his Acura TSX. $ 30,000


And then there are the Rich by accident. These are all the people who made their money from skills that have nothing to do with money (non-financial skills). Famous athletes, actors, musical artists.


Most of the time when people talk about "rich people" they think of the third group. Which is funny because the third group is actually the poorest and is often looked down upon by the first two.

In fact, I have heard wealthy people patronize them as “the poor with money”.


You see, the "rich from father to son" inherited his wealth. He grew up with it. As a result, for the person in question, wealth is not exciting. This is how. Having money has always been normal for them. So they only spend money if they find something they really want, something they find quite rare and of a quality commensurate with the time [they are going to invest in it].

So when "the rich by accident" spend a fortune on something that doesn't last, it's not just waste, it's awkward! It's like walking around with his penis sticking out of his pants just to show his size. It is obvious that only a man who is not sure of himself could boast of [doing] something so trivial!

If you wonder why the rich from father to son can look “middle class” (to the untrained eye), it's because they only spend on things they really want or want. really need. Their goal is to leave their wealth as an inheritance to their children, just as they themselves received it from their parents.


For the nouveau riche, showing off your wealth is not a crime. But it's stupid, and that's the most serious crime.

The nouveau riche earned their money by being good at gambling. They have spent their entire lives optimizing everything. Maximize their income and minimize their expenses . They are businessmen [and women], they smell unprofitable investments like a shark sniffs blood. Spending money stupidly is not just a waste, it is a sign of weakness, a vulnerability that their competitors will know how to exploit.

So when a nouveau riche buys a house, he is already thinking about the value of its resale. When he buys a car, he thinks about the impact it will have on his business, his journeys and his insurance. When he buys a bottle of luxury wine , he negotiates with the seller until the seller gives him a discount., he negotiates with the seller until the latter gives him a discount., he negotiates with the seller until the latter gives him a discount.

If you are wondering why the nouveau riche can be "middle class" (to the untrained eye), it is because they know the real value of money and want to focus their efforts on investments that will make them more richer. .


So, to be frank […] the people who really act like the “middle class” are the ones who let their wealth go to their heads.

The genuine wealthy are too used to it to be influenced by its appeal, and the newer know all too well the exact value of every penny.

Only the poor, who have no idea what the money is or how they got it, spend it like you seem to think the real rich do. In fact, they behave exactly like someone who doesn't know anything about money.

When they shop for designer clothes, the genuine wealthy roll their eyes because the fabric is horrible and the fit won't be in fashion in six months. The nouveau riche say they could get the same item ten times cheaper without the brand's logo.

When buying luxury cars , the nouveau riche cover their eyes with gas mileage, while the genuine rich lament that such a beautiful machine is in the hands of such a bad driver., the nouveau riche cover their eyes with gas mileage, while the genuine rich bemoan the fact that such a fine machine is in the hands of such a bad driver., the nouveau riche cover their eyes with gas mileage, while the genuine rich bemoan the fact that such a fine machine is in the hands of such a bad driver.

As they build their homes, young people in high schools desperately wonder how an ebony table can be thought of as a pine floor, while tech giants ' calculate how many millions the owner has lost. on the resale of his land just by adding a four-car garage.'calculate the number of millions the owner lost on the resale of his land just by adding a four-car garage.'calculate the number of millions the owner lost on the resale of his land just by adding a four-car garage.

One of the best quotes I've heard about money?

“It's just a symbol of its status for people who cannot afford [to have status]”

Here is the richest man on the planet, baseball cap on his head. “Middle class” enough for you?


TLDR: "Spending all your money" is a "lower class" idea, and the majority of really wealthy people just don't relate to it.

One of the richest guys in France, Pinault just got married to Selma Hayek. Is he just average looking, but rich?

François-Henri Pinault is, in my opinion, an average-looking guy. He’s not particularly good-looking, but he’s not particularly bad-looking, either. Here are a few photographs of Pinault from within a few years of when he and Salma Hayek got married.

Presumably, Ms. Hayek has remained married to Pinault for all these years because she’s more interested in his personality than she is in whether he looks like Cary Grant. (Or her tastes could be different from mine, which is also a possibility.)

If your husband sleeps with a rich woman for $10M and transfers $7M to your account, will you divorce him?

I usually enjoy these “hypothetical moral quandary” questions onYEET MAGAZINE , but this one is a bit clunky. If you and your husband still have “my money” and “your money” in a relationship, then I think divorce may well be on the cards even if nobody sleeps with anybody else. That’s not a marriage - that’s a business arrangement.

What do you think wealthy New Yorkers consider wealthy, $5 million in net worth or $100 million?

Yes - 12 million net worth would support a very comfortable lifestyle (it's not the money of the super rich so they'll be no superyacht and helicopter,etc). The investment income of 600k annually would in general be taxed at a lower rate than regular income ( likely an effective rate with deductions around 15pct as opposed to effective rate of 35 pct plus in addition to Medicare and fica payments) which means 600k of investment income is more after taxes is closer to ~800k if it was regular income.

How is it like to be very rich and possess luxury cars, and how did you get rich?

Even though I can buy almost any car I want, I don’t posses luxury cars. I have a three year old Toyota Highlander and a two year old Ford F-150 truck. When I was in my early 20’s I decided I wanted to work until I was 65, so I started planning my future then. I set financial goals and career goals,…

If Meghan Markle is so cheap, how come she is so rich?

She is very rich because she is very cheap. She's an economist, accountant, investment banker, and bank teller. Most important of all, she's such a professional liar she can easily con even the Chairman of the Federal Reserve.

Which country is the least culturally rich?

Canada. All countries obviously have lots of culture.

Thing is with Canada they live next to the cultural giant USA. Canadian culture is so influenced by the US they don’t really have much culture themselves (Except Quebec maybe).

American culture is by far the most influencial culture in the world right now. Which is why Canada’s culture seems so weak in contrast because of the proximity.

You could probably name some small island nation that speaks english that is less culturally rich but hard to say really which is more or less.

Is Germany a wealthy country? Despite being the 4th largest economy in the world & largest in EU, do most Germans have the resources to buy a top of the range BMW being & living there? Can people in less affluent countries like Belarus do the same?

If you can surf, and you find the right wave you can afford a beautiful blonde wife, and a beautiful house and a beautiful car in Germany. The question is, whether you have talent to surf, and find the right wave. There are waves in Germany, there are no waves in Belarus. Proof: Muslim immigrant invented MRNA vaccine, the first to be applied to human. If you can surf = have talent, and are smart to find a wave = opportunity, come to Germany.

How do billionaires borrow against assets to avoid taxes?

This is the same idea as a Home Equity Line of Credit. If I bought my house for $200,000, and it’s now worth $500,000, I could go to the bank and take out a loan for some portion of that $300,000 increase.

As long as the bank runs my income position through their risk analysis and say I’m not a risky bet, and as long as I’m willing to pay a good interest rate on the loan I’ve taken out, the bank is going to make that loan all day long.

It’s the same way with these billionaires, except they’re using appreciated stock instead of their home as collateral.

If you became wealthy do you think you would tell many people?

The funny thing about money is that the more you have, the less you are concerned about it.

Once you reach what you personally feel is wealthy, you don’t think it’s all that interesting. Of course, what “wealthy” means is arbitrary and depends on you.

Perhaps you might feel wealthy with $1M net worth. If you had that at 21 years old when just about everyone you know at that age is near flat broke, then sure, feeling wealthy makes sense. Telling others at your age about it makes no sense, but telling investment and financial advisors about it makes a lot of sense.

For other people, having $10M or $100M might be enough. If you had that money, you’re definitely telling a good handful of advisors about it so they can help you manage what you’ve got, for a modest fee of course.

For those who reach the pinnacle of wealth as billionaires, they don’t need to tell anyone outside their inner circle since everyone already suspects the incredible wealth. Even then, those people might not actually feel wealthy as most of them still feel quite inferior to those having even more.

On a recent documentary on billionaires, Mark Cuban bemoaned he was only worth $4B and then immediately chastised himself for doing so. It shouldn’t matter that somebody like Bezos or Musk might be worth an incredible 40–50x more on any given day, but he still chafes at the idea. And he’s worth more than 99.99997% of the people in the world!

So, go ahead and quietly make money until it no longer holds your interest. There’s no need to tell everyone since if it’s enough, they’ll already know.

How come poor people buy more luxury products than rich people do?

Doubtful. More likely is upper middle class who buy luxury items to appear wealthy. The wealthy I know could care less, and choose to invest their money instead, and not spend on branded luxury items to impress nobody they care about.

Low income choose to spend for lottery tickets at 7-Eleven and Corona beer six-pack at the corner bodegas
