How rich is Tony Soprano? How much does he earn? What are his assets worth? How much money does he spent? To make an estimate, here’s a list of the spendings, earnings and possessions of Tony Soprano, his crew and his peers.
[Also see this analysis of how Tony Sopranos’ boss-mind works: combining a psychological profile by Jordan Peterson with Tony Sopranos’ doings and sayings as portrayed in the Sopranos-series…]
Tony Soprano and the Soprano-crew, and of course his allies and enemies, drive fancy cars, own big houses and spent loads of money on jewels, gumars and prostitutes.
The basic assumption of this table is that a closer look at their income and spendings gives us an insight into their worth. Therefore, it provides a factual overview of the money Tony Soprano and his crew say they make and the money they say they spent. Also mentioned are products they own and their estimated worth.
However, we have to take at least two things into account.
First off, we have to remind ourselves that they are hardened criminals, so lots of goods they own are bound to be stolen or extorted or gotten at a ‘discount.’
Secondly, we have to factor in a phenomenon called conspicuous consumption, which means (some) people buy things or spend money basically just to let other people know they can afford buying it. This means that there can be a big disproportionality between income and the possession of luxurious goods.
For example, while a large group X may spend 10% of their money on clothes, some smaller group Y may spend 30% of their money on clothes. People of group X will, from their own perspective, assume that people make about 10 times the amount of money their clothes are worth. Therefore, they’ll overestimate the income of group Y by approximately 200%. People in group Y will thus look richer than they actually are.
Taking these two factors into account, Tony Soprano and his peers may very well be not as rich as we would assume them to be according to their possessions.
