Multiply the average salary by 1.5 and then by 12.


You know, some Russians have businesses and other investments - some even multi-billion dollar ones.
How did you come up with the 1.5 number again? What does that mean? Why does it pertain to the Russian economy and not the US one? You study economics?!

Obviously some Russians have investments. You act as though every Tom, Dick, and Nikita are banking on their IRAs for retirement. Which we both know is far from the truth.

Jeff, maybe you should take a rest? There are about 1.8 earners per US household - their incomes make up the household income.

In Russia the number is higher than 1.5 (it's unknown, but should be higher), but I've rounded down, and didn't include non-salary income, to shock you a little bit less.

A lot of Russians have some investments. But stats are not available, and it's not needed to make my point...

You're missing the point, jeff. tsk. The point is that because the oligarchs and their kids have investments, Russia's a First World nation, it has joined the club. (How could you be so blind, as to miss The Point?)

Median income is about 30% less than mean. Continue having fun at your own stupidity, if you wish so.

Could you show a link that illustrates Russian household PPP, please? Thanks.

I provided links here, you can't do the same? As you have already guessed, I have googled this already and -- FUNNY -- I find very different numbers than the ones you show here.
So, please link where you are getting your information from.
Thanks!
