Rich and Poor

How rich are you? This site will give you some sense as to how well you are doing compared to the rest of the world.

You will be surprised. I know that I was. Shocked even. According to my income:

You are in the top 0.001% richest people in the world. You don’t need to know any more than that (and besides our calculator can’t do sums that big). Please consider donating just a small amount of your enormous wealth to help some of the poorest people in the world. Many of their lives could be improved dramatically or even saved if you donate just one hour’s salary.

I’ve never thought of myself as rich. And I do not hold enormous wealth. Not like these folks. Most people in Canada will be in the top 5%. And most people in Canada would not consider themselves rich or holding enormous wealth.

Something to think about.

    I know of a couple of people who tried to figure out my income by reverse engineering the percentage. I will give you a hint… you can get the same result by entering a number like 30000.00 or 60000.00

    The calculation engine does not respond well to punctuation marks.

    So perhaps I only make 30,000/yr. Or maybe 60,000/yr. Or maybe more. Only the government knows for sure 😉

    Thanks for reading the blog!

    Look, regardless of what that website told you, I’ve noticed you’ve been a little short lately. Don’t worry, what are pals for, I’ll be over to lend you a few bucks in just awhile.
