Bloomberg Businessweek developed a chart that shows the breakdown of wealth in the world, and gives ranking of wealth from the poorest (-2) to the richest (11) . Everyone in the world therefore has a “wealth number.” The chart makes it very clear just how extremely one sided the world's the distribution of wealth is.
