Middle class life
Life at the bottom of the middle class is pretty much the same as life at the top.
Sure, at the top you get more, nicer perks.
More, nicer cars; more, nicer houses; more meals at nicer restaurants; etc..
That, undoubtedly, makes a difference, but is it that big?
When you reach the lower levels of the middle class, if you want to change your life you have only one option: make asymmetric bets.
Or else, you'll be stuck in the same life forever, only maybe with nicer things.
