Indiens Ungleichheit bei Vermögen steigt

By Phil Bainbridge

March 26, 2024 - Der "Milliardär Raj" unter Premier Narendra Modi ist heute noch ungleicher als der britische Raj während der britischen Besatzung in der Kolonialzeit, als rund 50% des Einkommens den reichsten 10% der Bevölkerung zugute kam.

Inequality declined immediately post-independence until the early 1980s but shot up at the turn of the century and has widened sharply during Modi’s decade in power.

The inequality gap could actually be worse than the figures suggest; the quality of data in India is described as “notaby poor” by researchers at the World Inequality Database, and has deteriorated further in recent years.
