You Don’t Think We Got This Rich Giving Stuff Away Do You?

This photo shows no individual rights and no freedom, but it shows the rule of law as opposed to rule of man, as you can see opposite the small boy, the man with all of the power. Capitalism, is nothing but greed and money, a successful business in poverty all over the world, benefiting no one but the leaders.

Shifting inequality keeps European football leagues on their toes -

By using the Gini coefficient, usually used to show how relative incomes — but in this case points — are distributed, we can see how the balance of performance power in each league has shifted over time.

Wealth Inequality 2.7 Association between progressivity of pension system and income equality. The horizontal axis is labelled ‘Gini coefficient for incomes of population 65 and over’ and the scale runes from 0 to 60 in intervals of 10 units. The vertical axis is labelled ‘Progressivity index’ and the scale runs from minus 40 to plus 120 in intervals of 20 units. The chart is a scatter plot with a dot for each of 25 different countries.

Wealth Inequality 1.9 Chart 2 - Gini coefficients of income inequality, mid-1980s and 2011 in selected OECD countries- This chart shows change in Gini coefficients between 1985 (horizontal trait) and 2011 (arrow going up for most countries). Countries on the left have highest Gini in 2011 (Mexico and Turkey); countries on the right the lowest (Denmark and Norway).

Inequality is significantly more marked in Sydney than in other Australian cities, according to new research from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, revealing the income disparity between the 1% and the rest across the country. The research also broke the country down according to the Gini coefficient, a measure of the distribution of incomes. Values closer to 1 represent greater inequality.

This graph shows trends in redistribution between the Gini coefficients of market income and disposable income in selected countries in 1990, 2000 and 2011. The graph shows that Scandinavian countries are continuing to making progress towards more equal societies.
