Nice graphic showing 50% of the worlds 1%'ers are Americans. What may surprise you is the amount of income needed to make it into this exclusive club.

It is amazing how little income (from an Americans perspective) it takes to be a part of the vaunted 1% world-wide--this is a teachers salary! (keep in mind it notes income AFTER taxes):

""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.)""
