As a general rule the data is gathered by the International Association for Research in Income and Wealth but I know first hand that  OXFAM runs it's own studies independently!

Thanks for your help.

According to the same report "In China the top 10% now take
home nearly 60% of the income
. Chinese inequality levels are now similar to those in South Africa,12 which are now the most unequal country on earth and significantly more unequal than at the end of apartheid 13"

Looks like a big FAIL for China and so called "Communism". What's your take on this?

To take people out of poverty is not an easy task but if we stick to the numbers China fares better than other countries in terms of equality: of course for some journalists this not good news because there's still a general idea that communism is bad and evil.

If the "numbers don't lie" and according to the report China is "similar" to "the most unequal country on earth" and that includes the so called "West".

How does "China seem far more equal than the rest of the word" in your view? The numbers say the opposite.

Er..... How does 1 to 33 fare worst than 1 to 50? The wealth distribution data says that! This to me translates that China is more equal than the World as a global!
