Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh, no doubt about it.  But you could say the same thing about people earning $30k/year.  A person in that income bracket is more likely than not to own his/her own home (think about 55-60% of people at that level typically do in the states), own a car, have a computer with the internet, etc -- almost infinitely wealthier than the working-class guy in China.  I'm just trying to say that we tend to, I think, overestimate what being in the top 10% means at times.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
