(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The answer is Malaysia has the second highest Gini Coefficient of 0.492 in Asia.

This is good or bad news? Something not appear in the mass media must be a bad news for BN government.

What does it mean with high Gini Coefficient?

The wealth distribution is very uneven amongst its population. In another word, the gap between rich and poor people is huge at about 23 times.

80% wealth controlled by 15% rich; 20% wealth controlled by 85% poor. (Source quoted from the World Bank)

Malaysia is a country where rich man is richer, poor man is poorer over the years.
