Source: The Economist
It is hard to imagine that 421 people alone hold net worth equal to 10.5 percent of what a population of 330 million working together can produce in a year!

According to The Economist:
A survey for the World Economic Forum meeting at Davos pointed to inequality as the most pressing problem of the coming decade (alongside fiscal imbalances). In all sections of society, there is growing agreement that the world is becoming more unequal, and that today’s disparities and their likely trajectory are dangerous.
