Got $4000? You’re rich, by global standards

Infographic: 0.7% Of The World's Population Control 41% Of Its Wealth | Statista

Ponder these economic inequality stats: “According to Crédit Suisse, people with a net worth of over $1 million represent just 0.7 percent of the planet’s population, but they control 41 percent of its wealth. 69 percent of the world’s population have a net worth of under $10,000 – they account for a mere 3 percent of global wealth. Meanwhile, 23 percent fall into the $10,000-$100,000 bracket and they control 14 percent of worldwide wealth.”

To be counted among the wealthiest half of the world’s citizens, you require a personal net worth of $3,650.
