Doug and Amberly explore the intriguing reasons why many millionaires consider themselves middle class.  They discuss the technical definitions of financial classes vs. the challenging societal definitions of these same classes, how both of these relate to their own views, and the psychology of wealth & self-perception among financially successful individuals.
