What annual gross salary should one have in Germany in order to be considered an upper class?

Exactly, as Uwe Zimmer says, you have to get out of these dimensions.Statistics is one thing, real life is another.

From Euro 4,445.— Net per month, one belongs statistically officially to the German upper class.According to the IW Köln, this only makes up 3.5 percent of the population – at least 2.8 million people – and is, of course, open to the top. Then you belong in a class with Georg Schaeffler, the Aldi heirs and Mats Hummels. Congratulations!

Let’s take a quick look at the table.

Singles with a gross annual income of 25,000 are already officially counted among the better-off. They contribute 5.8% to income tax and, with an income of 88,900, you are also among the better-off as a married person with two children. Including this income, 97% of income tax is payable.

In the case of the REICHTUMGSGRENZEN for income, it is as follows:

The extremely high incomes, according to the in-demand real upper class, are much higher and have also risen more than other incomes in recent years.

All top earners, actually no longer have an actual salary, they draw their income from the most diverse sources, mostly from capital assets, and in very few cases in Germany sufficient tax is paid.

Take the richest German Dieter Schwarz.

His fortune amounts to just under 40 billion euros. I write the zeros out of 40,000,000,000.00.

If he invests it and makes only 2% return on it, that’s 800,000,000 euros a year.I’ll count on the day; that is just under 220,000 euros per day!!!!!

These are upper-class income, not salary …

And these incomes have been rising more and more in recent years

In the case of assets, the following is the following:

In Germany, the 45 richest households own as much as the poorer half of the population.

Both groups each had a total of €214 billion in assets in 2014. The following graphic shows the wealth distribution in Germany – the top ten percent are colored blue, the remaining 90 percent are colored red.

The top 1% owns about 35% of all assets in Germany, including that of the state.

The business magazine Bilanz lists the 1000 richest Germans and their wealth.As a result, the financial elite currently owns more than 1.177 trillion euros.That’s 13 percent more than last year – and roughly equivalent to Mexico’s gross domestic product.

The 78-year-old Dieter Schwarz, founder of the food chains Lidl and Kaufland, is the richest German according to the “Balance Sheet” with an estimated fortune of 39.5 billion euros.The Schwarz Group is also the largest family-owned company in the country with a turnover of 96.9 billion euros. This is followed by the Aldi families Karl Albrecht Jr. and Heister.

Supplement of 16.11.18

In itself, my contribution ended here.But make inquiries, comments do not make me point out that I have only given facts. I answered a question. I have not called for class struggle, nor have I advised to condemn anyone for what he/she calls his/her own. And I don’t believe in redistribution either, because there’s no point in anything like that – that’s ridiculous. If the Schwarz family were to have their assets, each German would receive about 500,— Euro. Let’s keep it….but maybe donate a little more to daycare centers and schools.

Surely my opinion is that the term “OBERSCHICHT” for a family of four and with an annual income of about 84,000,— and125,000.— (for which the 300% rule) is not applicable, a subjective opinion. Sure, you have a lot more than many, many others, but …. Upper?I have a sufficient income and still strive for something more. I don’t belong to the real upper class … but I’m fine. And I donate.
