There is a widespread belief that all the citizens of the UAE are very rich. In particular, a person I know who grew up in UAE suggested that "Pretty much every citizen has a Bentley" is literally true.
How close is this to reality? Is the average citizen of the UAE very rich, or is the income distribution more like that of other countries? If it helps, consider only long-term citizens.
Links to this claim: In the UAE, even poor people are rich, "provide native Emirati people, especially the upper class, with extra money" 2, 3, 4.
Please note that only 20% of the population of UAE are citizens of the country, so statistics that apply to the entire population are not very indicative.
