Is average income an accurate measure of wealth? Hmm.

Income shows some indication of wealth potential, perhaps, but other life circumstances can make two families with similar incomes radically different in terms of disposable income.

This is very true. Which is why the arbitrary incomes thrown around for who is "rich" and who is "middle class" are very meaningless. Where you live also plays a big part, as does the choices you make about money management. Someone making the same income in NY or SF isn't living the same lifestyle as someone making that in Atlanta or Charlotte.

Correct! 150K a year in NYC/San Fran vs. GA/NC is a huge difference!

I was also taught it wasn't how much you made, it was how much you have saved!

In regards to payments (car/house)......You don't worry so much about being able to afford the first payment as much as you should be about the last payment!

Exactly. Someone with less income who makes better choices can end up with a higher net worth and better lifestyle, and someone with a high income can make poor choices and manage their money badly.
