    What is financially rich, anyway? Most people don't equate wealth with a yacht in the Mediterranean and a house on every continent (that might be nice though!). What is rich to you?

    I would go with having enough money and assets so that you don't have to work for a living.

    Rich=Not having to worry about future chaos.
    Wealthy= Not really having any idea how rich you are.

    Of course I'm using the murkin definition.

    It doesn't matter how much money you have, you aren't rich unless you have an (R) next to your name.

    I've read that on the internets......

    Assets in excess of a million US dollars is a good cut off. Of course those with more money usually spend more money and the outflow percentage of capitol may be close to others in a lower bracket making the rich person feel like they are not all that rich.

    Its all relative.

    rich is having enough money to never work another day for the rest of your life....Additionally the majority of your money is safely invested (not the market)
