Just learned these pleasant statistics recently:
- Combined world military spending in 2010 came to 1.63 trillion dollars (The U.S. alone representing 45% of this total.) That is $233 for each man, woman and child in the world.
- 80% of the world population lives on less than $10 a day (almost half living on less than $2.50 a day.)
Stuff to ponder as humanity moves forward. Pass this on if you are as shocked as I am by this.
