It's totally dependant on where one lives and the local cost of living. Some places 40k will allow a person to live OK and still save - others 40k is almost poverty level.

We are only talking income here. Wealth is made up of your assets as well as your income. For instance, if you have a decent house and a reasonably small mortgage (or no mortgage), your disposable income may be quite a bit higher than someone who is earning a lot more than you, but has a large mortgage to service.
