Rich and Poor - The Growing Wealth Gap in Germany

The wealth gap in Germany has been growing steadily for decades, with the richest 1% of the population owning more wealth than the bottom 50% combined. This inequality is reflected in a number of areas, including income, housing, and education. The gap is also evident in the distribution of wealth across different regions of the country, with the southern and western states being significantly wealthier than the eastern states. The growing wealth gap is a major concern for policymakers, as it can lead to social unrest, political instability, and a decline in economic growth.
