Quotation from the Wall Street Journal:
“According to a new national survey of China’s household income, China’s richest 10% control 56.9% of household income and 84.6% of household wealth—”a level of inequality seen only in some struggling African nations,” said Gan Li, a professor at Texas A&M University who led the survey.”

This chart shows that the top 1% has 43 % of the nations wealth, the top 10% has 83%.
In fact the chart would show similar results in all countries. It seems to be ‘human nature’…
