WHAT DOES MILLIONAIRE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

millionaire

Millionaire

A millionaire is an individual whose net worth or wealth is equal to or exceeds one million units of currency. It can also be a person who owns one million units of currency in a bank account or savings account. Depending on the currency, a certain level of prestige is associated with being a millionaire, which makes that amount of wealth a goal for some, and almost unattainable for others. In countries that use the short scale number naming system, a billionaire is someone who has at least a thousand times a million dollars, euros, or the currency of the given country. In contrast, a billionaire in countries that use the long scale number naming system would be someone who has at least a million times a million units of currency. The increasing number of millionaires is partially due to prevailing economics, especially inflation; as the individual value of each unit of currency decreases, achieving a million of these becomes easier. The purchasing power of a million US dollars in 1959 is equivalent to $8.09 million in 2014. Decreasingly, the term denotes the status of high wealth.

Definition of millionaire in the English dictionary
