The rich are thinking twice – and feeling a little guilty – about those luxury purchases:
More than half of affluent consumers say they feel “guilty” making luxury purchases in this economy, a survey of the most-moneyed Americans finds. Fewer this year also say they like to be labeled as “wealthy.”
Of course, far more than a guilty conscience is at play. More than half of those polled — 53% — said they worry they could actually run out of money.
