    Global Rich List Test - Take It

    HOW RICH ARE YOU

    Every year we gaze enviously at the lists of the richest people in world.
    Wondering what it would be like to have that sort of cash.

    But where would you sit on one of those lists? Heres your chance to find out.

    The Australian currency is not part of the drop down choice
    So you need to adjust the $$ amount based on the exchange rate

    So much for "global rich list"...if the Aussie dollar isnt included in the list... ::)

    And whilst its based purely on income, it doesnt take into account anything else like debts or assets...so is this what so called rich lists are really based on? I mean, you could be earning a million bucks but you could also have huge debt and own nothing at the same time...I guess the way we measure wealth these days is wide and varied.

    Anyhow...even on my meager income for a year, I managed to get into the top 7 percent of "richest" people in the world... :o

    I guess it takes into consideration all the 3rd world countries that are lucky to have a job.

    Still didnt make me feel any richer

    I believe that wealth is relative to
    What your wage can purchase in the country you live in

    For the majority of the population
    You will find that most governments will Tax you just enough to keep you slightly above the poverty line

    Interesting you need about $3USD/day to be in the wealthiest 50% of the world. Sometimes we live very complicated and expensive lives.

    Only $100k AUD to make the top 1% (I wish ::) )

    Hi Chris,

    was there a few years ago agree totally. In SA the decent wages were in the order of $250-400/month but we certainly heard of a lot worse than that. Some of the slum areas of Joburg are just scary.

    great way to try and get you to donate money... have to give the guys that did this one a big pat for trying ......
