Wealth distribution: How we think it is and how actually is.

 

There is a lot to say when it comes to wealth distribution. Most of the people thinks that there is a big gap between the richest and poorest. But the truth is that this gap is no just big is HUGE. Rules.org made this mind-blowing video;

 

The richest 300 people on earth have as much wealth as the poorest 3 billion. This is no accident; those in power write the rules. Together, we have the power to change those rules.

 

This fact is hard to believe,  the proportions are just unimaginable.  Some of the information may come as a surprise to many people, I have to recognize even if I did know about this gap, I did not know that this gap was so big . Most of us have no clue  just how concentrated the wealth distribution actually is.  This video support the misperception of wealth distribution in the USA. Researchers asked to 5000 people, their perception of wealth distribution, this were the results.

 

 

What this suggested is that  many of us desire a more equitable society, and that the general people who fall into these different categories seem to agree about the ideal wealth distribution. Maybe this videos are quite biased, but put us on perspective and make us think a little bit outside the box.
