Let's throw a few comparative data sets together to discuss a few areas that would quantify actual poverty. Lets not use incomes, because PPP can vary from nation to nation. Rather, look at what the money buys via frequency of ownership of various goods, as well as frequency of metrics that would indicate lack of access to critical, life-sustaining things like food, water, shelter, ect.

I'll try to dig up some data to present shortly.

Back from the dead, I'm afraid.
