So just how rich are you?
If you're like me, you might not be used to thinking of yourself in those terms. And admittedly, it's not always that easy to do when some months you feel like you barely have enough to pay your bills, much less buy groceries, and much much less go out for a drink or two on the weekends.
Well, since we all need a wake-up call now and again, Poke, a London based interactive media firm, created the Global Rich List. They write...
"We are obsessed with wealth. But we gauge how rich we are by looking upwards at those who have more than us. This makes us feel poor.
We wanted to do something which would help people understand, in real terms, where they stand globally. And make us realize that in fact most of us (who are able to view this web page) are in the privileged minority.
We want people to feel rich. And give some of their extra money to a worthwhile charity."
Go ahead, give it a shot... just how rich are you?
