I would add that this definition must subtract any debts so a more accurate definition of real wealth would be “net wealth.” This then leads us to the question of what is poor or rich? This is very arbitrary. The purchasing power parity in, say, China is very different than that in the United States. Someone can be rich in China but not in the U.S., given the same income.
