The Miniature Earth


If we could turn the population of the earth into a small community of 100 people, keeping the same proportions we have today, it would be something like this:


61 Asians


12 Europeans


14 Americans (from North and South America)


13 Africans


01 Australian (Oceania)


50 women


50 men


10 homosexuals


33 Christian (Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox)


18 Muslims


16 Hindus


16 non-religious


6 Buddhists


11 practice other religions


41 live without basic sanitation


16 live without an improved water source


6 people own 59% of the entire wealth of the community


13 hungry or malnourished


14 can’t read


7 educated at a secondary level


8 have a computer


4 have an internet connection


Of the village’s total annual expenditures of just over US$ 3,000,000 per


year:


US$ 181,000 is spent on weapons and warfare…


US$ 159,000 is spent on education…


US$ 132,000 is spent on health care.


 


If you keep your food in a refrigerator
And your clothes in a closet
If you have a roof over your head
And have a bed to sleep in


You are richer than 75% of the entire world population.


If you have a bank account you’re one of the 30 wealthiest people in the world.


25 struggle to live on US$ 1.00 per day or less…


47 struggle to live on US$ 2.00 per day or less.
