The Top 10 Status Symbols Today, and the Top 10 Status Symbols From the '80s


Obviously STATUS SYMBOLS change over time.  In the '70s, it meant having a round leopard-skin bed with a mirror on the ceiling.  For some reason, that's NOT still cool today.
 
A new survey asked people to name the top status symbols TODAY, then compared them to a similar survey from the 1980s.  Here are the top 10 status symbols today . . .
 
1.  A fancy car.
 
2.  A designer watch.
 
3.  A swimming pool.
 
4.  Flying first class.
 
5.  Owning a second home.
 
6.  Having a tennis court.
 
7.  Sending your kids to private school.
 
8.  Having a vacation home.
 
9.  A home with electric front gates.
 
10.  A nanny.
 
And only ONE of those things has stayed consistent since the '80s:  Sending your kids to private school.  
 
Here are the top 10 status symbols from the '80s . . . and they're mostly things we take for granted today.
 
1.  A car phone.
 
2.  A dishwasher.
 
3.  Sending your kids to private school.
 
4.  Having two cars.
 
5.  Going overseas for a vacation.
 
6.  Having a sunroom.
 
7.  Owning a horse.
 
8.  A color TV.
 
9.  Diamond jewelry.
 
10.  Having a cordless phone.
The survey also found people think a fancy house today costs at least $1 million . . . in the '80s, people thought a fancy house cost $78,000.  (Daily Mail)
