In a rather light-hearted way, we’re going to take a look at the things that rich people and poor people actually have in common. Okay, not entirely in common.
While both groups use these things in one way or another, they typically use them completely differently. Before we continue, one thing to note is that this list is going to add a bit of humor to a normally quite heavy topic. That was intentional on our behalf.
We believe that even humor and good-natured jokes can be used to invoke critical thinking about the way that the world is structured and the things going on around us. At least that is what we hope we can do with this list. So, without further ado, these are 25 Things That Rich And Poor People Use Completely Differently!
