Centralization of Wealth, Odds Against Capitalism
The centralization of wealth continues to increase. This year the world's richest 62 people were as wealthy as half of the world population. In Russia, 25 years after the collapse of Communism:

- 110 persons control 35% of all wealth.
More than 9 out of 10 Russians own less than the equivalent of $10.000.
