Some might assume that the Amish are not especially wealthy based on their lifestyle, which can seem austere by modern American standards. However, while there certainly are some Amish that live – at least technically – below the poverty line, many are also quite prosperous financially.

Most Amish people like other Americans could probably be considered “middle class”. But there are also a good number of wealthy Amish people.

In this video I take a look at the Amish and wealth, sharing two fairly common cases where you might find Amish millionaires and even multi-millionaires. I also explain what wealthy Amish people do with their money in terms of investments and so forth. Runtime: 4:55
