gas station workers tend to drag down the average of that group, no?

+1 however, you don't get the glam of being a "CEO" or "executive" of a big company

225k a year lets you buy a nice house on the beach/your own private island in say, Brazil or living pretty swankily in Argentina.

dunno about argentina, but brazil is ridiculously expensive... unless you're living in the jungle.

no kidding. we house our expat transfers in zona sul (leblon, ipanema, etc). the housing allowance we give is higher than mortgage on multi-million dollar houses stateside. cheap... funny.

in BsAs a neighborhood like palermo is much more reasonable, by comparison

Mean/Median figures for things like this are basically useless if you want to know who the really rich people are.

Those people are sort of outliers by definition...The CEO of an oil company gets averaged in with 5 CEOs from companies like "Ted's Social Media Optimization Associates".

The variance might tell you a little more...I bet some of those top jobs have very little variance. Nobody gets fabulously wealthy doing them, but everybody who does it either does well or drops out of the field. There are probably very few anesthesiologists with low incomes...they either make 200k or can't hack it and quit (or if possible, transfer to some other area of medicine at which point they are no longer included in the anesthesiologist statistics).

LOL at thinking people on SF earn a lot of money.
Trust me, the average income is nowhere near $225k here.
Most people here are broke azz wanna-be's
