# Am I Wealthy ? Calculator

In the book ” The Millionaire Mind” the authors Thomas J. Stanley and William D. Danko explain the concept of Prodigous Accumulators of Wealth (PAWs) and Under-Accumulators of Wealth (UAWs). For their age and income levels,the PAWs are people who have accumulated an exceptionally good amount of wealth and the UAWs are those who fail to impress on the wealth front.This is because many people with huge incomes have equally large expenses because of their lifestyle choices.To check if you are a PAW or UAW use the calculator here Link  .

Congrats if you are a PAW!

This formula makes little sense at low incomes; a 50-year-old living on \$12,000 (poverty level) is expected to have a net worth of \$30K. Since people living at poverty level don’t save – unless they have some cost advantage most adults lack, such as perhaps living rent-free with parents – a working-age person at poverty level with \$30K net worth would actually be far above their peers of similar age and income despite being regarded as a UAW.

• Terry ,not sure I get what you’re trying to say. Could you please repeat your arguments step-wise?

• Terry Pratt says:

An adult earning \$12K per year is unlikely to be saving any money – rent consumes more than half my income – hence is unlikely to have any savings or wealth to compound over time.

Just to recheck, I went back to the calculator which is gone.

Terry,
Just checked. The calculator is now back in a new avatar with allowances for how money purchases different amount of things in different places. Also now there is an income and a wealth calculator. Playing round with them shows how privilege works.
