putting things in perspective

Hmmm... As i mentioned a few posts ago, I got laid off a week ago. I hate job hunting, but even if I find no job for the rest of this year, the money I've made so far makes me wealthier than 87% of the WORLD's population.

Wow. Where do YOU stand?

I've known for a long time that we Americans take our wealth for granted, but seeing that really brings home how much of a disparity there really is.


I don't think there's ANYTHING we could not achieve with our nation's wealth if we really wanted to do it.

The list stops adjusting at $223,190 Canadian.

Feeling rich is very relative. Someone on welfare in Canada is in the top 14%
