If The World Were 100 People
If you’re watching this, chances are you’ve won the lottery of opportunity
If the population of the world was only 100 people, what would society look like? And would it change how you behaved if you were one of them?
Do you make $90 or more each day? Well, congratulations! You are a member of the global 1 percent! But you should probably give a few bucks to the 71 people surviving on less than $10 in that same time period. Do you have access to clean water? Then you might want to share it with the 13 people don’t. The same goes if you’re among the 77 fortunate people who lives in a home. Would you open your doors to one of the 23 people without one? By the way, if that house guest speaks Mandarin you should definitely have them teach you, because at 12 percent of your new condensed community it is the single most spoken language in the world.
So if these 100 people were your new neighbors instead of anonymous individuals spanned out across an entire planet, what would you do about it?
