So I don't agree with the sentiment of this article but the argument is one of my favorites. Most of those people complaining about income disparity and the 1% are actually in the top 1% of income earners in the world. What does it take to be in the top 1% worldwide - $34,000. Some people need to be reminded we're lucky to be complaining about such first world problems. I don't mean to discredit the argument of Occupy Wall Street, over the past decade Wall Street / Congress has been doing a lot to threaten our wealth and security. Certainly something a lot to change before we end up like Iceland or Greece. But I am always sympathetic to the view that when you look at a lot of problems in the US from a worldwide perspective they seem insignificant.
