How Rich Are You?
People living in North America, Europe, and high-income Asia-Pacific countries hold 90% of the world's wealth. If your household assets exceed $61,000 (home equity, cars, retirement, investments) then you are among the richest 10% in the world. You're in the top 1% of global wealth if your assets top $500,000. Half of the earth's adult population, 1.8 billion, has less than 1% of the world's wealth. (U.S. News & World Report, 12/18/06)
