It seems like only yesterday that Web Watch told you how you only needed $47,000 TO BE IN THE TOP 1%, money-wise.

My, how times have changed.

According to THIS RECENT CHART FROM THE ECONOMIST, you’ll need much, much more than $47,000 to be in the top 1% of worldwide wealth.

And frankly, that makes more sense, doesn’t it?

The Economist says that if you want to rank in the top 1% of the world, you need to have $798,000.

Don’t have that much loot lying around right now?  Then comfort yourself knowing that you only need $77,000 to consider yourself among the top 10% of wealthiest people in the world.

And if you are content being at 50% of the world’s richest people, then fish around in the back of the sofa for some pocket change, ’cause all you’ll need to have is $3,650.

So how are we doing overall as a global economy?  If you take the entire world’s population and share out all the money in the world — each person is worth about $56,000.

So – how are you doing with your wealth percentage?  Would you consider yourself a “one percenter”, knowing these numbers?  Or are you more comfortable hanging out with the 50-centers?
