Default globalrichlist.com - Compare your wealth to the rest of Earth

Something I found: http://www.globalrichlist.com/

According to my annual income:

Quote:
You’re in the top 19.12% richest people in the world by income.

You earn $6,000 in 1 year. It would take the average labourer in Indonesia 8 years to earn the same amount.

Thirsty? It’ll only take you 14 minutes to earn enough for a refreshing can of cola. If the average labourer in Ghana fancies one, they’ll have to work for around 9 hours for it.

Your monthly income could pay the monthly salaries of 26 doctors in Azerbaijan.

$300's the lowest point apparently.

Quote:
In 1 hour you make
$0.16
Meanwhile, the average labourer in Zimbabwe makes just $0.53 in the same time.

Thirsty? It’ll only take you 5 hours to earn enough for a refreshing can of cola. If the average labourer in Zimbabwe fancies one, they’ll have to work for around an hour for it.

It takes just a minute to do something to help though. Simply click the button and donate an hour’s pay, or whatever you can afford, to our chosen charity.
It's interesting.


You saw this on VSauce, didn't ya?

This actually made me feel a bit better about myself, and want to donate some. Hrm. Food for thought.
