How Rich Are You?


    Bagaimana untuk mengukur kekayaan anda? Adakah mereka yang tinggal di bandar dengan berpendapatan RM3,000 sebulan  sudah cukup kaya, dan boleh digelar sebagai Orang Kaya.

Berdasarkan maklumat yang dikeluarkan oleh Unit Perancang Ekonomi (EPU) di bawah RMK9, Paras Garis Kemiskinan (PGK) di bandar bagi Semenanjung adalah RM740, Sarawak RM860 dan Sabah RM970. Pada Okt 26, 2009, Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan dalam satu temuramahnya dengan akhbar tempatan telah mengumumkan penetapan kerajaan atas ukuran RM3,000 sebagai PGK untuk isi rumah di kawasan bandar.

Saya terjumpa satu tools yg agak menarik bagi menghuraikan definisi kekayaan. Ia dinamakan How Rich Are You? Sebagai contohnya, bagi seorang yg mempunyai pendapatan RM3,437.50 sebulan  atau bersama USD1,000 dihuraikan seperti berikut:

You are the 773,071,647 richest person in the world!
You're in the TOP 12.88% richest people in the world!


RICHER THAN YOU THINK?

How do you feel about that? A bit richer we hope. Richer and ready to give some of your newly found wealth to those who need it most. It not hard - just slip your hand in your pocket and pull out something special. Something that can help redress the balance - and also make you feel uncommonly good. Many peoples lives could be happier if you donated just one hour's salary (approx $6.41 - UK estimate).

All you have to do is make a choice.

$8 could buy you 15 organic apples OR 25 fruit trees for farmers in Honduras to grow and sell fruit at their local market.

$30 could buy you an ER DVD Boxset OR a First Aid kit for a village in Haiti.

$73 could buy you a new mobile phone OR a new mobile health clinic to care for AIDS orphans in Uganda.

$2400 could buy you a second generation High Definition TV OR schooling for an entire generation of school children in an Angolan village.
