Congressional Wealth: China Vs. America
« on: September 20, 2013, 09:23:58 AM »
An amazing must-read article and graph from The Economist:

"Indeed, the 50 richest members of Congress hold a staggering $1.6 billion. But that's nothing compared with China. The wealthiest 50 delegates to the National People's Congress (NPC), China's rubber-stamp parliament, control $94.7 billion, according to the Hurun Report's latest rich list. That's about 60 times more than their American confrères."
