Are you part of the top 1%? 

Fascinating factoids from World Bank economist, Branko Milanovic: You need an annual income of just $34,000 a year to be in the richest 1% of the world. To be in the top half of the globe you need to earn just $1,225 a year. For the top 20%, it's $5,000 per year. Enter the top 10% with $12,000 a year. To be included in the top 0.1% requires an annual income of $70,000. Something to ponder next time we rage about the top 1% :)
