A NEW class of "poor rich" has emerged who are unable to meet their mortgage and other repayments despite earning more than €100,000.
These people elicit little sympathy but are often job creators and entrepreneurs, research by a leading financial adviser has found.
Many of these people have seen incomes collapse from €300,000 a year to less than €100,000 -- but they still typically owe more than €1m on their home and other property loans.
