It's a loaded question. Advances in spaceflight benefit everyone in some form or another, even if you yourself never make it to orbit.
That's only true if you live in the West. Earth's poor get very little benefit from space.

I've never owned a $100k Mercedes, but my current car has features that weren't even dreamed of in Mercedes from the 1990's.
But if cars only cost $100k or higher, would you still benefit.
