The Bottom 1 Percent

theatlantic.com — How is it different to be poor-very poor-in a developing country than in the richest country in the world?

finance.yahoo.com — Here's the problem, as Guevarra and Howell see it: In many studies, participants are asked to think about material items as purchases made "in order to have," in contrast with experiences-purchases made "in order to do."
