Why does America have so much inequality?

The world’s richest 1% now own as much wealth as the poorest half of the world’s population, according to a report published on Tuesday.

The report by the World Bank said the global elite have more money than the world population of 8.5 billion, and are now worth a combined $2.2 trillion.

This is more than triple the combined wealth of the bottom half of global population and more than four times the wealth of China’s population.

The world has seen a dramatic rise in wealth inequality over the past two decades, with the wealthiest 1% capturing more than half of world wealth.

The global elite now own an average of nearly 40% of global wealth, according the report.

The richest 1 per cent have more than doubled their wealth in the past decade to $5.6 trillion.

The top 1 per “now own as many as the bottom 99 per cent of people,” the report said.

The World Bank’s report noted that the richest 1%, which includes billionaires such as Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, now control almost 70% of world economic assets.

The wealth of America’s richest 0.1% is now more than double the wealth owned by the bottom 80 per cent.

It’s a stark contrast to the United States, where the top 0.01% owns only 14.2 per cent and the bottom 95 per cent owns less than 0.4 per cent, the report found.

The 1 per 1% have also captured the bulk of the country’s financial wealth.

Their share of total wealth has increased from 21 per cent in 2000 to 40 per cent today.

“Wealth is increasingly concentrated in the hands of the very few at the top,” said the report’s co-author, economist Paul Romer, in a statement.

“The 1 per one per cent has become a political force in the United Nations, the global financial elite and their international corporate and political allies.”

It is estimated that the world has a wealth gap of $50 trillion, a figure that rises to $90 trillion if the current US tax rates are added.

“With the financial crisis in full swing, we are on the verge of a second financial crisis,” Romer said.

“It’s clear that the rich are not going to be able to escape the consequences of their actions in the next decade.”

The report said that the rise in inequality was mainly due to the spread of wealth, with wealth more concentrated in fewer hands.

“What’s particularly striking about inequality today is the relative ease with which people have access to resources and opportunities that once existed only at the expense of others,” the authors said.

They also pointed to the rise of a “financialized” economy and financialization of the global economy.

“As we see the growth of financialization and financialised society in many areas of the globe, we can see that the economic system has become increasingly geared towards the interests of financial interests,” they said.

In the United Kingdom, the poorest 10 per cent now own almost half of UK household wealth, up from less than 10 per year ago, the study said.

According to the report, wealth inequality is a major cause of inequality, and is likely to continue to worsen.

The Global Justice Ecology Index, a new index compiled by the Economic Policy Institute, found that wealth inequality in the world rose by more than 80 per a percentage point between 2010 and 2013, reaching an all-time high of more than 230 per cent by 2020.

The index also found that in 20 of the 20 most unequal countries, at least 30 per cent or more of wealth is owned by a few.

“This is not a new phenomenon; inequality has been increasing in the US and other developed economies for decades,” said Kate Brown, an economist at the EPI.

“But the US has been particularly vulnerable to the financialisation of the economy and the concentration of financial wealth in fewer and fewer hands.”

In 2015, the United Nation’s Human Development Report said that inequality had become the world economic crisis, and that the wealthiest 10 per one percent controlled more than 50 per cent percent of the total wealth in 20 countries.

The UN report also found increasing inequality in many countries, including the UK, France, Germany, Canada, Italy, and Spain.

In some parts of the US, including San Francisco and New York, inequality has doubled in the last decade.
