An unusual aspect of the economic culture is that
although the characteristics of culture members
seems to be the same across distinctions,
membership is defined locally.

For example, affluence is determined by a local
economy when locals are determined to be upper
crust and nationally for another determination.
Someone who Virginian level, and also might not
be part of the national American affluence culture.
What is affluent in Ethiopia is not affluent in Dubai,
even though members of both locations will act
and react similarly.

Predominant cultures:
  • Affluent
  • Frugal
  • Poor (paycheck-to-paycheck)
