American Wealth vs. Third World Poverty

The United States is undeniably the richest and most marvelous nation ever on the face of the earth. The gross domestic goods (Gdp) of the U.S. Is larger than the next two biggest economies combined, which in China and Japan. The U.S. Economy outproduces the combined economies of over forty-seven poor nations, which account for 53 percent of the population of the world. These forty-seven nations consist of China and India. But on an personel scale, just how does the wage of the mean American compare to the mean wage of the poor of the world?

In 2000 the per capita wage of the U.S. Was 360 percent higher than the world's mean per capita wage (Cpi). The U.S. Boasted a Cpi of ,100 while the mean world Cpi was ,410 (measured in international dollars). This does not give an literal, photograph because the world's mean Cpi includes the U.S and the other wealthy nations of Europe. Therefore, lets look at the 56 percent of the world's population who consist of the world's poor.

According to statistics from the World Bank, 56 percent of the world's population lives in extreme poverty. They survive on an wage of less than 0 per year or per day. Half of the worlds poor who consist of 28 percent of the world's population live on or less per day. In comparison, the mean American earns from 46 to 92 times more than the poverty stricken comprising over half the world's population.

American Wealth vs. Third World Poverty

If you are like me, you might say but things are so much Economy in poverty stricken countries. Yes, many things are Economy but we now live in a global market. Food is an international commodity. The cultivation of third world food is normally much more labor laberious and is often more high-priced than food grown on America's mechanized farms. Yet, American's spend and mean of ,400 per year per man on food and beverages. That 365 percent more than the total mean wage of over half the population in the world.

Accounting for every man, woman and child in the U.S., Americans spend an mean of .20 per day on cosmetics, perfume and skin and hair care products; over .50 a day on jewelry; nearly on furniture and other household goods; over per day on clothing; gambling totals practically per day; over a day is spent on automobiles and trucks; and over on food. Americans simply live a lifestyle that is beyond imagination for most of the poor in the world.

The Bible describes a nation called Babylon. Revelation 17 and 18 say that Babylon will be destroyed. God says that this destruction is his judgment on the nation. Revelation 18 clearly describes Babylon as the richest nation on earth. It is the nation to whom the merchants of the earth sell their goods. The U.S. Is the largest importer in the world. In 2000, the U.S. Imported .867 trillion in goods and services. Americans need to repent and turn back to God.
