You May Be Richer Than You Think
I found a cool online calculator on “The Consumerist” called the Global Rich List. Type in your annual salary and it spits out your rank in the world. For example, bring in $75,000, you’re the 49,322,169th richest person in the world. You’re in the top 0.82%! Another way of putting it, you make more than 6,750,677,831 people.
Richer than you think? The folks at Global Rich List hope you give some of your newly found wealth to those who need it most. One example they give:
$73 could buy you a new mobile phone OR a new mobile health clinic to care for AIDS orphans in Uganda.
Or there are plenty of other causes to donate to. The idea is you’re probably much better off than you think when you compare yourself to most people around the world. Something to think about.
