American Institute Peterson Institute for International Economics offers to a wide audience very unusual map of the world - on AMarkets materials.
On this map all unconventional. For example, Russia has a very small size - a little more than Germany. But African countries are just tiny. It's all because the Peterson Institute, together with analytical portal HowMuch.net defined conditional size of each country in proportion to its citizens living in the ten-to-income. America - patrimony of approximately one third of all billionaires, and therefore the largest country on the map.
Each region is divided into five categories, which determine the source of wealth residing in each region of the rich: inheritors, founders of new businesses, business owners and managers, political ties, the financial sector. For example, much of the Russian elite was able to get through the thorns to the top of the pyramid of wealth due to the strong political resource. And here in America, an equal number of those who have inherited billions of dollars, those who founded new businesses and those that drew revenues from the financial sector. In China, the percentage of those who have inherited wealth, is very small. Until a few decades ago, China was overall a very poor country. And then there was a production boom that has generated more than 200 billionaires. In South Korea, the opposite is true - 74% of billionaires inherited their money from hard-working parents and grandparents. In Europe, as many of those who took over the ten-digit state (except the UK). The percentage of wealthy heirs is greatest in Denmark (83%). In Germany and Sweden the proportion is also high - 60%.
