World Economy

A portion mere 0.7% of the global population owns near about half the world’s wealth. At the other part, 73% of the popular have less than $10,000 each. Lately, there has been an expanding sense that the economic recovery is shallow, and has not reached all layers of society. The number of global millionaires has soared by 155% since 2000, while the rank of the ultrarich has had an even more significant spike. The trend is only anticipated to continue. In 2000, the top 1% owned 49.6% of all household wealth. By 2009, the figure dropped to 45.4%. Since then, it has moved past the 50% mark, and it doesn’t look like that the trajectory is about to shift.

The huge gap between rich and poor is undermining economies, destabilizing societies and holding back the fight against poverty. Governments must act now by cracking down on tax dodging, elevating investment in public services and boosting the income of the lowest paid.

Globally 2015 was a certainly stagnant year for overall wealth, but the US and Japan was able to buck the trend. The UK, however, took a big hit in the wake of Brexit, losing USD1.5 trillion of its wealth when the pound was crushed. Moreover, the UK lost more millionaires than any other country across the globe. Switzerland remains by far the wealthiest country followed by US across the globe, per capita, with its average citizen’s net worth eleven times that of the world’s average, which has not changed from last year at 52,800 each.
