If you suddenly lost all of your sources of income, including your job, would you consider yourself poor?

Lets say a huge financial collapse occurs, and you lose all your sources of income, almost overnight, no-one is hiring, people everywhere in your country are in the same situation, the currency of your country is so inflated its virtually worthless.
Would you consider yourself poor?

Or do you have skills which would enable you to survive, perhaps even thrive?

    Mar 8 2013: Everyone may advise different solutions but reality in such situation is more painful. Values we have earned in our life will help us to lead a rich life and a notable death.

    There are more poor people than rich people(in terms of income) so bad plan on income = a very bad life.
