I always thought it was odd that the pc usually becomes wealthy but no one ever notices. You never live the high life. We don't even know what constitutes rich and poor objectively. We know we have one semi-quantifiable extreme, with House having millions of caps, given that he spent 800+ thousand of them in one year hiring scavs to find the platinum chip. But, as with casino money it's difficult to appreciate the value of caps. And the barter skill adds another layer of difficulty to any assessment we might make, but such is the nature of a barter economy. So I guess it's time for rampant speculation. How many caps a day do you think people live on? What is the minimum needed to survive? What is the poverty level/a liveable wage in a cap based economy? What is the avg income of common professions?
