A new report by The National Geographic Society’s Global Affairs Institute examines the United States’ wealth and finds that the country’s rich are getting richer faster than its middle class.
The report’s authors analyzed data from the U, S. Census Bureau, U.K. Office for National Statistics, and World Bank and found that the richest Americans in the United State now make up nearly half of the country.
That’s up from nearly a third of the population in 1997.
This represents an unprecedented increase, said the report’s lead author, Dr. Michael Gartenberg, the institute’s chief economist.
The increase has coincided with a surge in wealth in the top 1 percent.
According to the report, the top 0.1 percent, or about 5.5 million people, have gained nearly $100 billion in wealth.
Their share of the nation’s wealth increased by more than 100 percent from 1997 to 2015.
And while that wealth is concentrated among the wealthiest Americans, the report notes that it’s not all concentrated in one group.
While the wealthiest 10 percent of Americans have more than doubled their share of U.N. wealth over the past decade, the bottom 90 percent has lost wealth in that same time.
The top 1.2 percent has gained more than $15 billion, while the bottom 80 percent lost $3 billion, according to the researchers.
The authors said that while they don’t know for sure how much of the wealth gained by the top 10 percent is attributable to the recent global economic crisis, it is clear that the U and U. S. have seen a wealth redistribution that has accelerated.
“These trends suggest that inequality in the U is likely to be higher in the years ahead than in the past,” the report states.
In the past, the US. economy was growing at a faster pace than the rest of the world, Gartenburg said.
“As a result, the global economy has been growing more slowly than the U.’s.
We’re now seeing a redistribution of wealth from the rich to the poor.”
In the meantime, the study found that more people in the poorest countries are working less.
The United States now has the third-highest rate of total unemployment in the industrialized world.
Gartheim said that, by 2030, the rate of unemployment in countries like Russia and China will reach 20 percent, which will be nearly as high as it is in the current U.s.
While there are no reliable statistics on the number of people in developing countries without jobs, Gertenberg estimated that the number could be as high at 50 percent in the next 10 years.
As a result of the redistribution, people in poorer countries are not able to enjoy the benefits of international trade or the benefits that come from international cooperation.
And, he said, the world’s poor are being pushed further and further behind.
