Summary: This video offers a simplified and visually appealing way to think about global poverty. It does this by reducing the world's population (6.26 billion people) to 626 people. Out of that 626 people, it shows that 231 live in "Povertyville" (avg yearly income = $440), 265 live in "Slumtown" (avg yearly income = $1,490), 33 live in "Low Income City" (avg yearly income = $5,440), 92 live in "Pleasanttown" (avg yearly income = $28,600), and the remaining 5 people (<1% of the world's population) earn an average of $60,000 per year. This is a similar method to looking at other global demographics depicted in this video.
