Americans Are 50% Of The World's 1% [Headlines]
The US population has half of of the world's top earners.
The United States holds a disproportionate amount of the world's rich people.
It only takes $34,000 a year, after taxes, to be among the richest 1% in the world. That's for each person living under the same roof, including children. (So a family of four, for example, needs to make $136,000.) CNN Money
