The Canada Wealth Gap Statistics 2013

Couting-Hundred-Dollar-Bills

In Canada the top .01% of income earners have an average income of $6 million, and collectively earn 1.5% of our total income. Sounds like a lot until you look at the US, where the top .01% earn an average of $24 million each – which adds up to a 4.5% share of the total.

Tania Luna: How a penny made me feel like a millionaire

Tania Luna: How a penny made me feel like a millionaire

[ted id=1797]

As a young child, Tania Luna left her home in post-Chernobyl Ukraine to take asylum in the US. And one day, on the floor of the New York homeless shelter where she and her family lived, she found a penny. She has never again felt so rich. A meditation on the bittersweet joys of childhood — and how to hold them in mind.

Tania Luna co-founded Surprise Industries, a company devoted to designing surprise experiences.

WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO HER?

Tania Luna has an unusual title: she calls herself a “surprisologist.” The co-founder and CEO of Surprise Industries, Luna thinks deeply about how to delight, and how to help individuals and teams thrive in uncertain circumstances and develop the bonds needed to get through them.

When Luna was invited to take part in TED’s Worldwide Talent Search in 2012, she expected to give a talk about surprise and the importance of not being attached to outcomes. However, she was inspired to tell a more personal story — one many of her closest friends didn’t know — about her Ukrainian family getting asylum in the United States when she was 6-yeard-old and arriving in New York with virtually nothing. She sees her work as connected to her upbringing — in which a piece of Bazooka bubble gum, a thrown-out toy or a mis-delivered pizza was magical — because it gave her an appreciation for the joy of little surprises.
