We are reminded often in this film--and pointedly--that the rich do not talk about being rich. The subtext is that the rich don't talk about being rich with each other, but especially they don't talk about being rich with those who are not rich.
I would imagine this arises from a past where the wealthy are taught not to lord their privilege over those of less. Today that's not so much a risk with bling and Escalades. But then, those aren't necessarily the truly rich. Always funny to learn that somebody is loaded, because often it's the only the un-wealthy who act as if they are loaded, as if the act itself would be enough to attract the money.
Which, in the case of these kids, it would have been, since all the interviewees were born into their fortunes.

But good for Jamie Johnson for questioning himself and getting his friends involved. His father, when suggesting a potential career for his son suggested collecting antique maps.
