“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.
