Wealth Inequality

Recently I stumbled upon this video via www.upworthy.com and it seriously blew my mind. I consider myself a realist and I knew that the distribution of wealth was not even close to what the general population thinks it is, but the extent on which it is skewed still blew me away. It’s a must watch video.

The video focuses on the US economy and while I don’t think the statistics will be as staggering in Australia as the United States I still feel it will be far from an even balance.

For anyone who wants to read up on wealth distribution in Australia for 2011 / 2012 The Austrailan Bureau of Statistics has released a report which can be found here.

I would love to hear your feedback on the video and your thoughts on Australia’s wealth distribution. Leave comments below.
