How rich are you?

with 2 comments

Global Rich ListWant a stunning reality check? Click on the Global Rich List box here or in the right sidebar.  You’ll be amazed.

You’ll find yourself at a safe non-profit site where there’s a box to enter a number – your approximate income – with no ID of who you are or anything of the kind (lie about it a few times if you want to experiment). Then you’ll see how your income ranks in comparison to that of people in the rest of the world.

You’ll also see a graph – like this:

And your position will be marked in red, with a big “YOU” over it.

Now here’s why I encourage you to do this: I think we tend to assume most people are about like us. But I’m betting you’ll be astonished.

Jesus once said it was harder for a camel to go through a needle’s eye than for a rich person to enter heaven. Who’s he talking about?

I’d love to read your comment. What does it suggest to you?
