21 countries where people are richer than Americans

21. Qatar – Median wealth per adult: $69,671

Qatar may be tiny, but it is wealthy, with the sixth highest GDP per capita in the world at $70,740, according to the International Monetary Fund. The country owes much of its wealth to the fact that it’s home to the world’s third-largest oil and natural gas reserves, which have brought in a large migrant workforce in recent years.
