If you had to make it on $25k/yr, where would that put you on a world scale? (Top 2%)

At twice that amount, the median U.S. household income is stunning at around $50,000, with one or perhaps two wage earners.

Friends in Kenya; it's grasshopper season, so the
kids are out with sticks to catch a few.
If their families take in $800/yr,
they're above the median
in the community.
They're normal
in this world.
And what about the rest of the world?

Is there insight here that might help us shape our own lives and priorities?
What do we teach our children about such things as wealth and privilege?

Just how big an issue is this anyway?  Should I be be concerned?
