Someone did this blog:

As you read the comments, there are many different viewpoints.

So Kiely to answer your question if you have your basic needs filled such as you describe, no I would not say your are poor in a sense, since you have other things, that are of more value then money.

The problem lies that many in our community do not necesarily have all those basic needs fulfilled, and here lies the contraversy.
