Okay, so pretty much the title: How should I Make Money off Status-conscious loose-moneyed locals? I live in an area with a lot of hypocrites who are simultanously status-conscious and altrusitic. Basically, they have a lot of income and spend most of it. I want to take their money. Let's shoot some ideas around; I'm sure I'm not the only person who lives in such an area. I thought maybe I should develop some product that they would need to buy and pay a monthly fee for (similar to the Iphone) in order to maintain their social status.
