The new issue of the Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report (2015) has been published. Below the distribution of global wealth.
wealth distribution
Nothing changed much since we posted the previous version here. As I commented regarding the previous version, the poor are fundamentally in Africa, India, and Asia-Pacific (mainly Bangladesh, Indonesia, Pakistan, and Vietnam), while the wealthy are in the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific (i.e. Japan). China has more people in the middle section of the wealth distribution than at the extremes.
PS: Also posted (with a different graph) on this in my personal blog here.
