    Why do you live in it then? Or do you have your own definition of "world", per se?

    So which one has the 1% thing in it? Or should I read them all?

    When I was studying Geography back in College I cam across it in a textbook (which I have in front of me) The exact quote I cant find. The quote actually said if the richest 10 men or something similar, that if they donated then it would be enough for.......

    Its not hard to believe as the richest 1% own 40% of the Worlds assets.

    The UN Development Report is for the year 2003. HERE is an article by Columbia University economist Jeffrey D. Sachs is special advisor to United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan on the Millennium Development Goals, and Sakiko Fukuda-
    Parr is director of the U.N.'s 2003 Human Development Report. He is asking for 7/10 of 1%, so even less.

    PS
    The article is in pdf format.
