HARTFORD, Conn., Jul 19, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- America's millionaires are a study in contradictions, possessing lofty financial dreams but often lacking the requisite plans to reach these goals, according to the seventh annual Phoenix Wealth Survey conducted by The Phoenix Companies, Inc. (NYSE:PNX).
