For Where Your Treasure Is...

Are you on the rich list? Probably, by global standards, yes, you and I are rich. And yet we are constantly bombarded by suggestions (even edicts from the White House) that the American Way is to spend our paths to happiness and prosperity. See where you rank in the world's measure of riches by plugging your annual income in dollars or pounds into the window. Here's what this webpage Rich List is all about...

WHY ARE WE DOING IT?

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 realise 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.
