@cbae: My home cost about 4x my salary.

The wealthy typically buy multiple homes.

Someone making $20k per year shouldn't be eating out for lunch everyday. I pack my lunch and spend roughly $10 per week instead of the $25 at McDonald's.

OK. I'm assuming that you make over $20K per year. Let's say you make $50K per year. That means that somebody making $20K per year can spend no more than $4 per week on lunch. That's 80 cents per day. Is that really realistic?

On the flip side, a person making $10 million per year needs to spend $2000 on lunch per week to have the same economic impact as 200 spinovious clones ($10 million / $50K = 200). Even with your frugal level of spending, that's proportional to $400 on lunch PER DAY. Do you honestly believe that this is normal even for somebody making $10 million per year?
