I came across an interesting website recently called Global Rich List where you can type in your annual income (in a variety of currencies) and find out approximately, just how “rich” you are in comparison to the rest of the world.
The website is a simple but effective reminder of how little it actually takes to inhabit the top 10% of the world’s richest. If you make enough to live under a roof, to have enough food every day, and to buy small extraneous luxuries once and a while, you’ll be surprised by your spot on the Global Rich List.
Of course, the list deals only with the economic indicators of wealth, thereby ignoring other important factors to a person’s standard of living, including access to healthcare, a strong community, and clean environment. (In fact, if you google “happiest people in the world” it’s the citizens of Nigeria that come out on top).
