Well . . . not by American standards, but according to a website Global Rich List I am very rich. It asks you to input your annual income and then they show you how rich you are compared to the rest of the world. I live and work in Dubai, a place where opulence is seen daily, I mean they just bought a Lamborghini and made it a police car. Who does that?
The site is run by a group in the UK known as Poke. They explain how they calculate it and said that the average annual (that’s every year people) salary is $5000 US dollars. That’s less than $100 per week. A great exercise would be What would you spend your $100/week on? Beside raising awareness they are also asking for donations that go to JustGiving.
