Rich People Enjoy Acting Like They Read The New Yorker

Ah, the rich. Are we so different? In many ways, yes. They buy a Lexus, we buy a bike. They buy a new iPhone, we remain faithful to our Razr. Yet perhaps we’re not as different as we think we are, because according to a new survey, even rich people fake their New Yorker enthusiasm.

Adweek explains that while 57 percent of people with an income of $250,000 or more report that The New Yorker is their favorite magazines, it doesn’t even make the top ten of the magazines that they actually read.

What do the wealthy consider worthy of their time? People and something called The Costco Connection. That’s right, rich people would rather read an article about 50 gallon jars of pickles than one found in The New Yorker.
