It’s official: America has the most billionaires in the world, for yet another year.
OK, Google tells me it’s 614 of them.
Finland, the happiest country in the world, has just six billionaires.
Hmm, Finland’s population is 5.5 million, the US 330 million. So, adjusting for population size we’d get 360 Finnish billionaires. Sure, that’s different from 614 but not that different, is it? Also, the US GDP per capita is about 24, 25% higher, again closing the gap.
As usual, The Guardian is giving us numbers not rates and being misleading in doing so…..
