According to the World Inequality Report 2022, inequality has increased in most countries over the last two decades: The gap between the average incomes of the richest 10% and the poorest 50% of people within a country has almost doubled, from 8.5 times to 15 times. The 2022 report points out that “this sharp rise in within-country inequalities has meant that despite economic catch-up and strong growth in the emerging countries, the world remains particularly unequal today. It also means that inequalities within countries are now even greater than the significant inequalities observed between countries.”
