In the United States, the rich donated an average of 15 per cent of their income, Smith said. But in Australia it was less than 1 per cent. ''In America, I'm told that if you are wealthy and you're not known as a philanthropist, you are a social pariah.''
Is there any truth in claim above that America's rich donate an average of 15 percent and rich Australians only donate less than 1 percent?
The article is suggesting rich means earning more than $1mil per year.
