I agree with that..

It is total BS. Do a quick calculation for yourself. Bill Gates is the richest at $46 billion net worth. Assume the other two have just as much (they don't, but let's assume it anyway), so the net worth of the three richest people on the planet is less than $138 billion. Now divide by 6 billion. Answer? $23.00.

Since there are roughly seven billion people on the planet, for this goofball's assertion to be correct we would have to assume that 85% of the people on earth have a net worth of less than US $23. This isn't close, not even by an order of magnitude, probably not even by two orders of magnitude. It's just another made-up Lefty statistic that the credulous slogan-parroting mouth-breathers too lazy to think for themselves accept uncritically, because it fits their preconception of successful people as evil monsters.

Further, the poorest 6 billion don't live in "extreme poverty". You are one of the poorest 6 billion.

The most pessimistic estimate of those living in extreme poverty currently hovers around 1.5 billion.

...but you and i have a very different idea of what it means to be successfull. If you have even close to that much money, you are probably quited dishonest, wastefull, and will do whatever it takes to keep that status.

Being greedy and getting money does not make you a success.

How much money? More than $23.00?

... you are probably quited dishonest...

There was a poll here a while back where people were asked what they thought it took to be "rich" -- a net worth of over $500,000, a million, 5 million, 10 million, etc. The vast majority of the respondents here (in combination) voted for $500,000, $1 million, or $5 million.

If you live in America, start working in your early twenties, eventually attain a reasonable-paying job, and invest intelligently, it is not that big a trick to have a net worth of a million bucks by the time you're ready to retire. From the poll here, it seems that having a million bucks net worth qualifies one as "successful".

That means by your standards there are literally millions of people in America alone who are probably dishonest, wasteful (and note the more wasteful one is, the harder it is to accumulate that million bucks), and prepared to do anything to keep their status.

It's time for you to think for yourself rather than continue to parrot mindless slogans. It is not necessary to be evil, wasteful and heartless to be successful. It is not necessary to steal from others to become successful. That is a standard kneejerk Marxist assumption with no basis in reality. It just sounds fashionable to say it.

Thanks for the correction on the population figure.

So, if there are 6.3 billion humans on the planet today, that means the goofball's figure is even more absurd -- it would lead to the conclusion that 95% of humans on earth have a net worth of less than $23.00.

The amazing thing is not that people who make such absurd statements make them, it is that so many people accept them uncritically -- when a two minute google search and a minute of grade-school arithmetic disprove them so readily.

Unless you bought all that stuff yesterday, you don't owe the full amount.

If you have made any payments on any of it, you have net worth. Surely you have things you own outright. That's also net worth. Got money in your pocket or pennies in a jar at home? That adds to your net worth as well.

I'd try adding your net worth again.

None of which changes the fact that a foolish statement was made earlier in this thread. None of which changes the fact that it's the type of statement that anyone with 1/10th of a brain can see is bogus. Yet so many are so anxious to believe.

I didn't comment on the statement beacause it is just plain wrong.

Correct.

Hmmmm... Income 120K, Mortgage 250K, Credit card debt 20K, Monthly bills and Car Loan.

You were pretty good at listing your debts. You didn't list your assets. The mortgage on your house is still 250K, but what is its appraised value? What is the appraised value of the car you are paying off? What is the value of the goods you bought with your credit card? What is the value of the clothes, appliances, furniture, books, pots, pans, candles, toys, etc. inside your house? What is the value of all your savings accounts, checking accounts, 401K plan, life insurance policy, investment vehicles, and the cash in your wallet?

Unless your house dropped substantially in market value after you bought it, you have a net worth of far more than $23.00.

You think Bill Gates is the richest person on Earth? The people, make that families, who have are the wealthiest probably have one third, if not more, of shares of all multinational companies. The problem is, they can buy any puppet to 'lead' a company for them, and live in anonimity, because they can afford to.
