Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Wealth is having the capacity to exercise your full human potential.

In a capitalist society, that means having enough money to not have to give careful thought to the price of every purchasing decision you make. And it means living in a society where the systems of material provisioning work reliably.

There are other ways to organize society which do not place so great an emphasis on money. But a lot of them trade off the reliability of the provisioning systems.
