This book studies household assets and debts. It documents not only the level, distribution, and trend of wealth holdings in rich nations, but also addresses developing countries like China and India.

Worldwide, it is estimated that the richest 2% own more than half of total global wealth, and that this elite group resides almost exclusively in North America, Western Europe, and rich Asia-Pacific countries.<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/352630028<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Online-Publikation<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/352630028#Series\/oxford_scholarship_online<\/a>> ; # Oxford Scholarship Online<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Personal wealth from a global perspective [a study prepared for the World Institute for Development Economics Research of the United Nations University (UNU-WIDER)]<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"613059779<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publication<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/613059779#PublicationEvent\/oxford_u_a_oxford_univ_press_2009<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:publisher<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/352630028#Agent\/oxford_univ_press<\/a>> ; # Oxford Univ.
