Check out GlobalRichList.com... you can see how wealthy you are compared to the world.
Quite fascinating, because they figured out that, based on data from the U.S. Census Bureau, if the median income of a person with a Bachelor's degree is $43,143... That salary would rank as 135,773,914th richest person in the world. Which might not seem like much, but when you figure there are 6 billion folks on earth, that puts the average American in the top 2.26% richest people in the world.
Bump that salary up $50,000... you're the 59,029,289 richest person in the world, putting you in the Top 0.98%
A person making $100,000 is already in the Top 0.66% of the Richest People in the World... and just being in this part of Jersey, you know people left & right are easily making that kind of moula.
Kinda puts it all in perspective, doesn't it?
