I see it with both. More of the "money talk" is with the middle class which thinks that they're creeping up on upper class but it's their credit card talking. Usually the "new money" is too busy to talk, and the "old money" is usually the kids that talk.

We have lots of friends down here who have done well in life.Most from the north but a few southerners,as well and we've never heard any of them brag about their accomplishments or personal wealth.
If anything,the opposite is true.They try to play it down and if you didn't know them you'd think they were just average working folks.
One.for example,attends that big charity auction in Naples every year but never even mentions it.He's more comfortable with a draft beer and a plate of BBQ at the local rib shack.

When people say it is a northeast thing they shouldn't be so broad. People from new England, which is Maine. Vermont, new Hampshire as well as Massachusetts. We are all taught. Never talk religeon, politics, or money you'll do nothing but make enemies.
Of course there are always the know it all's that are going to try to educate you on each but it's more that they like to talk not about who's listening

Why did this issue get everyone so excited. A jerk is a jerk is a jerk. So why waste a moment of time on one?!/! Get over it and enjoy paradise or go back where you came from.

People love to brag about all their toys and such.
More so the people that have perceived wealth, ie: living off of credit cards.
I think it may be more prominent in the NE because many people were raised in poverty or near poverty and now have the means (credit or cash) to be as far away from those days as possible.

Cleaner air than most places, except the deserts. No income tax, very nice weather all year long. Great green spaces and abundant wild life. Very friendly people and the freshest seafood. Everyone is own path thru this world and it is easier to see the beauty and what is good around us than to let some jerko smuck it all up.

To be fair, Edina is very wealthy I got uncle and aunt inlaws from a small town in SW Minn. Land of lakes, and modesty.

Yes, Edina is a wealthy area. That's one of the reasons that he thinks (and brags) that he is "Mr. Big".
