According to a new study from the University of California-Berkeley, the rich got richer and the poor got poorer during 2007.The wealthiest 15,000 American households, those making more than $11.5 million a year, accounted for a record 6.04 percent of the nation's $8.7 trillion in income. The previous year those households amassed 5.46 percent of the total.On the other hand, the share of all U.S. income made by the 66 million Americans who earn less than $30,000 a year shrank by 2.3 percent from 2006, a decline of $149 per taxpayer.:
What do you honestly think of people who have more than you do or are more professionally successful? Do you feel jealous? Resentful? Or ... Does it inspire you to work harder?
Do you, right now, consider yourself to be rich? (Almost nobody does ...) Do you consider yourself to be poor? How much would you have to make for your to consider yourself rich?
For me, wealth is something that goes beyond money. Wealth is health and happiness..how bout you?
