S.C. boasts more millionaires per capita than N.C.

Hold on to your tarred heels, folks. There's a new study out that says South Carolina has more millionaires per capita than North Carolina. That's right. The state that even suffers mobile home jokes from its own representative to the Miss America pageant, ranks 43rd in a new study by Phoenix Global Wealth Monitor, a service that tracks affluent households.

The Palmetto state has 76,831 households with $1 million or more in investable assets, according to the study, which is 4.2 percent of total households.

North Carolina has 158,447 millionaire households, or 4.1 percent. That ranks us 44th.

Right below South Carolina. Anybody got a problem with that?
