Wealth Beyond Your Wildest Dreams

The Global Rich List challenges us to focus on giving rather than getting

| September 19, 2003


Just as I was lamenting my four-figure income resulting from two years of under-employment, I stumbled onto the Global Rich List web site. After checking out the global income calculator, I learned that I'm actually wealthier than 25 percent of the world population. Even more astonishing: 50 percent of the U.S. population earns a median income of $25,400 and falls into the top 10 percentile of the world's wealth. The Global Rich List, created by Poke, a creative company based in London, was designed to challenge people's perceptions of their personal wealth while inspiring them to contribute some of their 'extra' money to charity.
