poverty in perspective

kindly don't think you are poor:

here faculty generally make over $30000, some make much much more, some a bit less, depending on a variety of things, but still that makes them richer than 96% of the world minimally.

graduate students on stipend, figure tuition and a few hundred a month comes to $20k, well that put you in the top 8% of the world in salary…..

i know it seems like people are poor in respect to the students driving around in corvettes and other $50k autos or the like, but remember it is all a matter of population and wealth in the end, perhaps it is time to reconsider that inheritance tax…
