Re: The Potters and their money, how and why were they so rich?

The Gaunts didn't have money because, as Dumbledore said in HBP, "Lack of sense coupled with a great liking for grandeur meant the family gold was squandered several generations before Marvolo (the last descendant of Slytherin other than Morfin/Voldemort) was born."

The Potters, who were a pure-blood family as well, had money and they kept it throughout the generations because they were wiser and more conservative, methinks.
