World’s Wealth

“It is not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more that is poor.” –Seneca


Check out this interesting visual of total wealth by country. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.
What sticks out to me is:

1) U.S controls almost 30% of world’s wealth.

2) Taken together the countries of Asia control 39% of world’s total wealth.

3) Poverty of underdeveloped countries is obvious. Africa and Latin America only control 1.14% and 2.75%, respectively.
