Scatter plot of 113 countries comparing wealth vs income inequality. The red square is the United States.

The L shape of the scatter plot was not what I expected. However, many countries don't have a recent Gini index (1987 to 2003) while GDP per capita is available for 2003/2004 for most countries.

Definition of Gini index a measure of income inequality. 0 = equal distrubution 100 = one person has everything
