Could Americans Live On $10 Per Day?

Did you know that 80% of the world lives on less than $10 per day? And even more shocking, almost half of the world lives on less than $2.50 per day. But the average middle-class American spends $59 each day. Our culture has been referred to as "a culture of excess" – but does that make us a greedy nation? Listen to The Dani Johnson Show as Dani discusses the real meaning of greed, and the impact it has on a nation.

    80% of the world lives on $10 a day or less but the value of their money is very different then ours. Do they pay $4 for a loaf of bread or a gallon of milk?

    Dani needs to compare us to countries similar to ours — Japan, China, Europe are all hard workers with an economy that supports technology — cell phones, etc. Are they stressed out, etc. Yep.

    Thank you Dani for explaining what financial independence is. My husband and I are very close to being debt free. However, hearing that having $100,000 in the bank and not having that “I want this” attitude broadened my thinking and understanding! Thank you so much.

    i have always been open to different concepts of the human psyche,personally,socially and politically.growing up in the south of these united states of america as a young african american,deciphering the inner workings of the human being that would have an affect on my life has often been a given.taking what is good and right and true to best of my ability acccording to what i believe is my GOD inspired right.even when i didn’t need the press or anyone else to tell that a person n authority,didn’t have my best interest,i respected there position,took what was good for me ,used that to continue to build on my own convictions.i’m just saying,that i have never seen any president labeled guilty before he could be proven innocent that he does not want what is best for america.there is a history of many evil and inhumane things done n this country by people n authority and there has never been much wind pushing a witch hunt to their front door. i have evolved as an american and as a human being,aware that knowledge is a powerful tool n judgement of character and successful decisons.i don’t know everything about u,dani, but i believe that what u r doing for others,just like myself and reaching out to help others b successful as u have is a principle that comes far above politics,but from the creator of us all,love,respect,and appreciate what u are doing to help others.
