Top 1%

This time it's not talent it's the World's wealth. According to a recent research in 2000 the richest 1% of adults owned 40% of Global assets. The bottom 50% of the World's population owned only 1% of the World's wealth according to this news article.

If you like to find where you are fetch your calculator now. If you have at least $500,000 by year 2000 then you are one of those 37 million people at that top 1%.

I won't be particularly happy about being in that 1% unless I have done something to help the other 99%.
