stinginess rankings...

Someone recently pointed me here --

This is supposed to show that Americans are more giving than the others.

I'm not convinced, yet.

I'm wondering where the other data -- the per capita income, for instance -- is....

I don't know what those numbers look like, and don't have time today to search them out, but I'm inclined to believe that those other countries listed have per capita incomes that make the percent-of-income donations by their citizens much more impressive than those of the US -- and thus, the Americans are more likely to be shown stingy.

Just a hunch, today, but I'd love to get confirmation (or refutation) from anyone who has the time to draw the full comparisons out -- or share their known links to the rest of the info....
