I had no idea how rich, in worldly terms, I was until I began studying poverty and development. I learned that if one has an income of £23,000 sterling (US $36,500) one is among the richest 1% of the world’s population. I also learned that extreme poverty is defined as less than $1.25 a day. This shocked me. I realised how thoroughly spoiled people are in my country – and that I was chief among these!
