Occupy Asia – there are more millionaires in East Asia than North America

There are now more rich people in East Asia than in North America. Both have around 3 million millionaires and there are 11 million worldwide.

But don’t forget about the little countries. Japan still has three times as many millionaires as China.

And, if the rest of Asia were to unite they would outnumber China too. Perhaps, a strategic partnership could counter-balance the Rising Tiger.

Looking at the rest of the world, North America still has more money and really rich people – more billionaires than anyone lese. Europe is solidly in third place, while the Middle East is tied with Latin America. But only tied in terms of people, not overall wealth. I guess Latin Americans can buy bigger boats than Middle Easterners.

United Nations has gone mobile – so many apps for world peace and development

The United Nations has gone mobile…in a big way. In just a few clicks I found more than 10 iPhone apps covering everything from news to statistics to global photos.

Plus, a very cool short video about the apps from Jess3:

 

I’ve just downloaded all these apps and haven’t yet played with them, so no recommendations yet. Let me know if you have any suggestions or tips:

 
 
Pieces of Peace

The app makes it easy to get involved and includes some innovative (and fun) ways to learn about the work of the United Nations. An interactive photo-scramble game, “Pieces of Peace,” gives users the ability to have fun while they learn by unscrambling photos taken around the world that are related to the work of the UN. The game includes ways for users to learn as they play, helping build awareness and knowledge about international issues. Integrated social media options also allow users to organically share this content with friends, brag about their photo-unscrambling prowess, and encourage them to get involved.

Labor Stats on Labor Day

In honor of Labor Day I visited a favorite government website, the Occupational Outlook Handbook.

The handbook covers every career in America and discusses interesting things, like day-in-the-life, growth potential, education needed, salary ranges. 

For a young whippersnapper it was perfect. I would browse everything from doctor to trash man to college professor.

Today, I found several images that reflect interesting labor trends in America. Here they are, enjoy, and Happy Labor Day!
 

Ethnicity

 

80%+ of the work force is White, while persons of Hispanic origin are projected to increase, by 2018, their share of the labor force from 14.3 percent to 17.6 percent.

 

 

 Age

 

Largest group of the workforce, 23.3%, are those age 45-54, followed closely by those aged 35-44, 22.7%.

 

 

 New Jobs

 

Most new jobs in America are projected to come from healthcare and scientific/technical professions.

 

 

Fastest Growing Jobs


 

Largest Group of New Jobs

 

Clearly, thousands of jobs, nearly all the jobs, will be healthcare.

 

 

Fastest Decline

 

Bye, bye manufacturing….

 

 

Education

 

Get an associate’s after high school, or a master’s after undergrad and you will be much better off.

 

 

Good Producing Jobs

 

We don’t produce goods anymore, just houses.

 

 

Change in Employment

 

We are definitely becoming more of a service society…not sure that is a good thing.
