Expert Answer:

1. The correct sentence is: You are richer than I. 
This sentence uses than as a conjunction, but when you use the subject pronoun I, it implies you  "You are richer than I am". The "than me" version introduces ambiguity. There is an understood verb at the end, that says, "richer than I am".
 For example: 
  • Shawn likes Peter more than me.
This could mean:
  • Goerge prefers John to me.

  •   or

  • Goerge likes John more than I like John.
The best way to get around this is to treat than as a conjunction and not as a preposition as stated in the second sentence. 
 
 
2. He is richer thaan you are.
