I’m RICH!

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. Check out the site and leave your comments below about how you could use it in your class.
