Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I can't remember where I saw it (probably someone here will), but there was a tool someone once posted where you put in your yearly salary, and you got back at what percentile you are in the world's wealth. As I recall, most all (if not all) of us here at ET fall in the top 99 percentile...which was prety shocking to me, as I have only been able to work part time the last 2.5 years. So "poor" in the West, is fairly well off in much of the East and South...
