Wealthy/affluent people have a vastly different mindset, consciousness, and psychology than the middle and lower socioeconomic classes. That probably explains why some people are/becoming rich while the rest are middling to barely subsisting.

True. From the millionaire next door to the 4 hour workweek. Investing and growing once's investments leads to wealth. Purchasing the latest vehicles, shoes, purses, expensive overpriced jeans does not increase wealth and unfortunately so many people value symbols of expensive items instead of storing wealth.
Well, yes. If you can't flaunt your wealth, proving your superiority to the workers and producers of the country, what good is it?
How CORRECT you are in your assessment. Wealth is to be used judiciously; it is not to be flaunted. Use it judiciously to help yourself and to assist others. Extravagant use of wealth is foolhardy as to continue to be extravagant in the use of wealthy will soon cause poverty and penury. Wise and intelligent wealthy people DON'T flaunt their wealth; they use their wealth judiciously. They often live BELOW their means.
Inheriting secondhand items and clothes-shopping at Goodwill (like, once every 2 years) hasn't increased my wealth, either.
