How much does the ‘privilege’ of living in a deeply unequal nation cost ordinary Americans? Some numbers from Belgium can help us tally up the total.

    Just wow! It smacks of pre-rebellion and I hope to die before the shit hits the fan. If it starts before I go I will be on the side of the below “typical”!

    The average Belgian has more dollars than the average American, and probably more sense as well. 🙂

    Thanks for the interesting comparisons.

    My reaction is–wow ALL these people have too much money. What would the numbers look like for Mali? Or Vietnam? Or Bolivia? We have an international wealth distribution problem as well as one within countries.
