Reality of Rich and Poor | Wealth inequality is widening in the world

A United Nations (UN) survey has found that 2% of adults command more than half of the world's wealth, while the bottom 50% possesses just 1%.

While income is distributed unequally across the globe, the geographical spread of wealth, which includes property and financial assets, is even more skewed, the study by the World Institute for Development Economics Research of the UN University showed. The report was released last Tuesday and its authors say it is the most comprehensive study of personal wealth ever taken. (credit)

The full report paper is here (pdf file). Also Read details about the study which exposes what kind of inequal world we live in today. Here are some of the headlines around the globe on this from google news:

:: Richest 2% own more than half the world - study
:: 40% of world's wealth owned by 1% of population
:: Have's have most of it
:: The rich really do own the world
:: Chasm between world's rich and poor
:: Small Band of Rich Controls Majority of Wealth

- More News from Google News.

So whats the point? you might wonder. Well, don't forget the poor neighbor or homeless in your city or town. Its your duty, no matter what, to share a part of your extra wealth to those who have much less than yours. Pls create a little kindness inside of you.

>> Lo! the righteous shall drink of a cup whereof the mixture is of Kafur. A Fountain where the Devotees of God do drink, making it flow in unstinted abundance.

They fulfill vows and fear a day (Judgement Day) the injuriousness of which shall be spreading far and wide.


And they feed, for the love of God, to the poor and the orphan ... (Saying),"We feed you for the sake of God alone: no reward do we desire from you, nor thank". The Quran, 076.5-9
