Equating wealth and worth is a logical fallacy is in which the wealth a person owns, earns, or has accumulated is assumed to be a reasonably accurate representation of their worth as an individual and therefore presumably also representative of the value their contributions to society.

This is a special case of the fair world fallacy.
