More seriously, you can measure it here.

What it does not take into account is PPP.
$1 million makes someone in Africa very rich, but not so much in Switzerland.

Mrs. Lak and I keep talking about selling up everything and moving back to Swaziland, we'd be in very, very good shape there.

I suppose if I liquefied every goddamned thing I own, I could turn that into a half million USD.

I doubt I could get a half a mil, even by selling everything off. More likely around $300K USD tops.

But I'm worth around $800K to my wife if someone kills me.

Be careful in your negotiations with her ... ;)

I thought the Trump methodology was to add up overestimates of the total value of all your assets, irrespective of what share you hold, and to ignore the liabilities. By which reckoning, ten billion sounds about right for me. :lol:

Using the "Big Mac" index, you would get 2.5 dollars worth (in purchasing power) of Lilangenis for every dollar you convert.

That means $400 000 effectively makes you a millionaire, plus you can marry extra Mrs. Laks.

If I take PPP, I rank at 7,785,586
Without PPP, I don't rank at all.

I've found that in places where the dollar goes ridiculously farther, life is also ridiculously less valuable. Toddle up to some place like that and settle into a villa, just for someone to come either wait until you're gone and take your shit, or maybe even take you. Unless you have enough money to benefit the locals visibly.

You'll be all right in Australia then, as there's not much of the world where you'll get less for your dollar than here.
