A friend of mine posted a very interesting statistic on wealth that originated with the Coffee Party Movement. The CPM is the non-media visible counter part to the Tea Party. I want to share with you information that probably 80%+ of Americans will deny its accuracy. The denial is a normal reaction for people living in a country that is propagandized every day on being patriotic – America #1 every one else in the world is envious of us.
Below you will find a chart showing a median wealth table that was formulated using the Global Wealth Data Book. American’s believe they are Number One when it comes to personal wealth. They are off by a long shot.
The median represents that point where the wealth of half of the American people are above the median and half of the American people are found below the median.

|United Arab Emirates||$47,999|
So the next time you complain about money, just remember to think of these numbers and know that you are falling behind because you are too busy thinking America is #1 when it is not. Many have chased us and passed us over the past 33 years.
