Are you one of nearly 9 million?

It is estimated that there are approximately nine million (9,000,000) millionaires worldwide.

From SeattlePi"
"....the ranks of world millionaires had swelled to 8.7 million last year _ half a million more than the population of New York City.

Millionaires also invested more aggressively, pouring cash into emerging markets and pulling it out of fixed income holdings, as their wealth reached $33.3 trillion, more than double U.S. economic output, a study by Merrill Lynch and consultancy Capgemini found.

The red-hot Middle East saw nearly 10 percent growth in millionaires _ the world's fastest rate _ with record oil revenues and soaring stock markets pushing 300,000 people over the million-dollar mark."
