Just by looking at the salaries of the 10 highest paid CEOs in the world, you’ll instantly get a sense of injustice that is a lot more common than you think.

Of course, we’re not saying that these CEOs don’t deserve their annual income, but when you think about what $1 can buy you around the world or about the minimum wage in the US, we can’t help but wonder that somehow, money is not fairly distributed throughout the world.

A recent study shows that just by dividing your income by 1000, you’ll find out the exact sum that you should donate in order to save the world from hunger, from poverty. Check it out, it’s truly remarkable how so little of our income can do so much for the greater good of mankind.

The 10 highest paid CEOs in the world could also do this, and what a difference it will make. Let’s look at their salaries and imagine why doctors, teachers or researchers don’t earn as much as they do.
