            #322,977,942 and among the top 5.38%... surprising. Is this thing accurate?

              I feel soooo much better now... and I thought that I was so poor!

              I'm still poor but I'm at the top of the Poorhouse stack so I can "live large" and "smile easy"

                Top 15%. And i live on bare minimum wages(welfare) ATM, suddenly i dont feel so bad, guilty maybe but not poor.

                  I checked out how much you need to earn to be in the top 50 %: $ 862 a year.

                  Theres a lot of dirt poor people out there i guess.

                    Well, that's some good news for a change, I'm #38,341,065. Out of 3 billion or so that's not so bad. Now if I can get the IRS and my Ex to stop taking all of it, I'd be sittin' in tall cotton!

                      It's only income... not wealth that's being measured. Now some people own stuff, others use stuff that the bank owns, but take that into account and the result is: pretty much the same - since the vast majority of the people on earth are living in outrageous conditions. Thus -we need more capitalism in the 3rd world, fast! Still the world is better than ever before. Someone posted about the rift widening between rich and poor - that is crap seen to the overall picture - despite the poverty of the poorest, they are better off than ever before, and catching up. Just let communism sleep please. Give the world a chance.

                        It's probably pretty easy to be in the top 20%, simply by not being a subsistance farmer or refugee in Africa, the Sub-continent, or SE Asia.

                            Of course, this doesn't take cost of living into account. Why do you think so many American retirees move to Mexico (or other southern climes) for their retirement? That Social Security check that leaves you in poverty here can let you live quite a luxurious lifestyle in Guatemala.

                            So... as bad as the wealth curve looks... it isn't really quite as bad as it looks. However, there is no denying that there is a gross maldistribution of wealth in the world and this is going to be the driving geo-political force for the remainder of this century.

                              Of course living cost sometimes different, but sometimes it means different life quality. To get the same quality is almost the same cost country by country.

                                Now may be a good time for the NATO countries to start beefing up their materiel, personnel and alliances. There is a decided wave here in the US that...
