Tsunami: Final Stingy List Update

American private donations to tsunami relief, according to Chuck Simmins’ STINGY LIST, have topped $1,000,000,000.


I can tell you with utter certainty that this amount is far short of what has actually been donated. It may be short by as much as $100 million.

I’m ending the record keeping at this point. I believe I made my point…

Kudos (and then some) to Chuck for maintaining this list.

And anyone who wishes to discuss per capita income in America vs. other nations or other relativism is welcome to refer to the $5 Rule.

I’d like to point out an earlier MO post which bore a very similar title for comparison’s sake.
