An article on msn.com reports on a UN study of global wealth:Â “The research indicates that assets of just $2,200 per adult place a household in the top half of the world’s wealthiest. To be among the richest 10% of adults in the world, just $61,000 in assets is needed. If you have more than $500,000, you’re part of the richest 1%.”
I read a lot of these kinds of statistics, but this brought me up short.Â It also mentions that the three richest people in the world have more money than the poorest 48 countries combined.Â But don’t let that distract you from the fact that most of us reading this are rich compared to the rest of humanity.Â How does that make you feel?Â Guilty? Weird? Generous? Protective?Â Another rich person wants to know.
