How Much Is $70 Billion?

If reports are accurate that deposed Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s net worth is $70 billion dollars, how much does that work out to per Egyptian?

According to the CIA’s World Factbook, the population of Egypt was 80,471,869 in 2010.

$70 billion dollars divided by every man, woman and child in Egypt works out to $869.87 each.

For the average Egyptian family with 2.6 children the total is $4001.40. – almost exactly two years worth of wages in Egypt.
