In Mr. Shullman’s survey, affluent and luxury attitudes might also be considered diffuse, but quite clear in its presentation of four distinct low to high-end affluent mindsets; compared with the mindset of 61% of the American populace, who make less than $75,000 a year. One of the multiple take-aways is how different in buying behaviors and concerns affluent people are from each other, as well as from those of “average” means. The variables involve income levels of affluence, age, and gender.... Read More
