Pareto Principle, Take-2

Few years ago, I did a back-of-the-envelop calculation using Pareto Principle to make a list of countries that have at least a million people with a PPP annual income of a million dollars. The exercise gave me 48 countries. Then I ran a rough cross-check and it seemed to check out. Then I wrote down my findings in this post.

That was towards the end of last decade. I am using it now to globally roll out my company, Amura Health.

Today, I used the same methodology to quickly calculate how many trillionaires will be there in the world by end of the current decade, or 2030. Here is what I ended with:

By 2030 the world will have

  • 500,000 people with a net worth of $1m
  • 100,000 people with a net worth of $100m
  • 35,000 people wit a net worth of $1b
  • 5,000 people with a net worth of $5b
  • 1,000 people with a net worth of $25b
  • 150 people with a net worth of $100b
  • 25 people with a net worth of $0.5t
  • 5 people with a net worth of $1t
  • 1 person with a net worth of $10t

Let us see how it goes!

A friend of mine posed a question in a private WhatsApp group:

Predict one big game changer impact in the next ten years, courtesy corona

There were many interesting answers (e.g. China will disintegrate over the next 10 years). To help me clear my thoughts, I wrote this blog post. This is what, I think, COVID will do to our 2030:

By 2030, we would have traded our freedom and privacy for hyper-connected, hyper-wealthy, hyper-healthy and hyper-hedonistic lives.

Startup Investing 101

I am a startup entrepreneur. Before starting my fund raising, I spent hours pouring over information available for entrepreneurs raising funds. When I realized that I was still lacking understanding of how investors think, I started going though content written for the wannabe early stage startup investor.

I have distilling my discovery in this living document that is being updated continuously, as I get new insights.

Evolution 101


All posts in "Life in a Color Wheel" series

We can’t understand human nature without understanding the forces of evolution that made us who we are. We are the happiest if we design our lives/societies around the human nature, like a well fitting glove is designed around a hand. Failed philosophies like Marxism and Objectivism are results of failing to design our societies around what evolution has made us to be.
