So you believe in the median?


This isn't religion lee. Can you at least try to make sense?

Would you rather live in a country with a per capita GDP of $100 or $100000?

Saudi Arabia ranks 36th in the world on per capita GDP, and 26th in the world on median income. So they actually share their wealth more evenly than what is typical.

An example -

4000, 6000, 20,000, 150,000. 4,800,000.

The median is the middle number of the group. IE  20,000.


Means you speak Bull sh!t. 

If a country had a per capita GDP of $100 and my income was $100,000; I could probably live comfortably.

Of course per capita income has no bearing on living expenses.

Still can't give a straight answer eh? How is it that you are able to say anything at all about the country if the statistic you are given is meaningless?

Assume you have to rely on your own wits rather than wishful thinking to earn a living and you are born into this country.

Would you rather live in a country with a per capita GDP of $100 or $100000?

Are you honestly claiming that a country with a per capita income of $100 will have the same living expenses as one with a per capita income of $100,000? What rock are you living under?

Why should I it has no meaning. I live in Australia, I am happy to live in Australia.

If you want advice on immigration go to someone who either cares or for the right money pretends to care.

As I and others have pointed out it doesn't say anything about the country. That's your obsession.

So how do you know you could live quite comfortably on $100000 in a country with a per capita income of $100?

Let's try again for a straight answer shall we? Would you rather live in a country with a per capita GDP of $100 or $100000, assuming you have to actually work for a living?

Do you uphold the use of straight answers in your campaign against the Muselman? Do you uphold the right to be a pathetic spineless jellyfish?

We're curious. We're keen to hear your thoughts.

You?

You did notice the qualifier? "probably". That denotes uncertainty. Wink

So when you say you are uncertain, you mean you know nothing at all?

Why are you incapable of giving a straight answer? Is this idiocy something to do with being a climate change denier?

Would you rather live in a country with a per capita GDP of $100 or $100000, assuming you have to actually work for a living?
