So how rich are you?

http://www.globalrichlist.com/



I have always known that living in North America has provided huge advantages in life and that my problems are not that bad compared to the problems of billions of other people. It puts things in perspective. Very sobering.

I edited it because I didn't want this to be a look how rich I am thread. I just thought it would be interesting for people to get a little perspective on their own situation.

I am in the top 0.827% richest people in the world.
There are 5,950,350,435 people poorer than me.

Yet, I live paycheck to paycheck and have very little to show for it. I guess they don't take into account where you live and how far the dollar goes.

I don't think it's fair to compare people in the US or other industrialized countries with third world nations. People always say how poor they are and how if they had even our lowest wages they'd be rich, but you have to consider that their lifestyles and standard of living are different. While 8 buck and hour may let them live well there, in the US you cannot survive due to the high cost of living since most everyone else is better off and prices are high. They should at least pro-rate it by their economy or something.

I must agree. According to this I am in the top .6% of the richest people and I am in debt and live paycheck to paycheck.
