3. Hong Kong – Median wealth: $166,887
In third place is Hong Kong, where median wealth is $166,887 and GDP per capita stands at $59,399. Despite high wealth overall, inequality is rising. In 2018, Oxfam reported it was at its highest level in 45 years, with median monthly household income for the top 10% being a staggering 43.9 times higher than for the bottom 10%. It’s clear that Hong Kong’s poorest residents are not feeling the effects of the city-state’s prosperity.
