Mapping the World’s Billionaire Population – American Geographical Society Global population has reached 7.4 billion people. Of this population, the top 1% owns more of the world’s assets than the bottom 99 percent combined. “Of the estimated $250 trillion in global assets, the top 1 percent owned almost exactly 50 percent, while the bottom 50 percent of humanity owned collectively less than 1 percent. The richest 10 percent owned 87.7 percent of the world’s wealth, leaving 12.3 percent for the bottom 90 percent of the population.” The top 1% is divided even further: “29.8 million with assets of $1 million to $5 million; 2.5 million with assets of $5 million to $10 million; 1.34 million with assets of $10 million to $50 million; and finally, 123,800 with assets over $50 million” (ICFI). So where do all these ultra-high-net-individuals live?

How to Make a Map in Illustrator Every time I start thinking of a tutorial to write, I try to show techniques that I use in my job as a designer.

Comments So the satellite imagery proves that the icing covering the planet in the winter has expanded and recessed at a constant rate, so much so that if you speed up the image, it gives the impression that the planet is breathing. How would this be possible if the polar ice caps are melting? Plus, I'm reading posts that we're trying to save the Earth... based on this video, the Earth is just fine and doesn't need saving. It can take care of its self like it's been around for billions of years. How is a species that's only been around for 100,000 years is going to tell a planet that's been around for billions of years that it's going to save it?
