The most equitable society in the world

The four largest officials in the world are the Pentagon, the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, Walmart and MacDonalds. Four out of five, then, are the US patterns. That is why the fact that 46% of all millionaires in the world live in the United States alone is not surprising either.

It is also clear that the United States is not exactly an equitable country. Between 1993 and 2010, more than half of the national income of the United States corresponded to the 1% of the population that had the highest incomes. But it is not the least equitable country either.

Although Scandinavian societies such as Denmark, Norway and Sweden are generally considered the most equitable in the world, Ukraine is the country where the gap between rich and poor is the smallest, with a score of 0.25 according to the Gini coefficient, which is the detector of wage inequality plus employee.

A score of 1 registers maximum inequality (one person has all the income), while a score of 0 indicates perfect equality (all citizens have the same income). Also according to this source, in 2015 South Africa had a Gini coefficient of 0.65, making it the least equitable society.

Which should make us remember why the rich also have a hard time if there is economic inequality in society.
