Champagne Glass Distribution of Wealth

...found from the Graphic Sociology Blog at

Another good visual of global distribution of income

Champagne Glass Distribution from Conley (2008) You May Ask Yourself

Conley, D. (2008) You may ask yourself: An introduction to thinking like a sociologist. New York: W.W. Norton and Company. p.392.


  1. well yeah the richest would have to have the highest income. what would happen if the glas was turned upside down or if it was just straight.

  2. is there something at "issue" with 20% of humanity accounting for 80% of the global income, thus 80% of humanity accounting for only 20% of the global income?
