Nice Infographic showing the Income and Wealth of the Characters in "Twilight". Very Walmart family-like...

I am not a fan of this movie series.  Don't hate me for it.

This is a nice example and illustration of people who are "income poor" but asset rich and are considered "wealthy".  We tax income at much higher rates but don't tax physical or financial assets until they are sold (for the most part, anyway, at the FEDERAL level). 

I guess you could say the characters from this movie are kinda like the children of Sam Walton of Wal-Mart fame.  Asset rich, income "poor".   Ok, no jokes about them being retail Vampires.  :)
