If one were to ask this week’s visitors for the United Nation’s general assembly, “what to do in Manhattan,” it seems as though their response would be “Make it rain” (in the hip-hop sense).

For these delegates, what to do in Manhattan during the United Nations assembly? As reported by the New York Post, Rwandan President, Paul Kagame has spent $16,000 per night for a presidential suite at the Mandarin Hotel. Meanwhile, the average Rwandan household earns $1,150 per year. Palestinian President Mahmood Abbas’ delegation spent a more modest $3000 per night, which is just over the Palestinian per capita GDP.
