Popular perceptions of the rich in 13 countries

Attitudes towards wealth and the rich vary greatly from country to country. Wealth seems particularly important to people in Asia, although this can only partly be explained by a strong economic need to catch up with other countries. After all, Japan is already a highly developed country, yet the pursuit of wealth is of far greater significance to people in Japan than is the case in Europe.

Social envy is least pronounced in Asian countries such as Japan, Vietnam and South Korea – with one exception being China, where social envy is similarly strong as in Europe. But also in Poland, the fastest-growing country in Europe since the transition from socialism to capitalism, social envy is low and attitudes towards the rich are very positive. At the other end of the scale are France and Germany, where social envy is strongest and attitudes towards the rich are generally negative.

Lies about the rich hurt all of us

Rainer Zitelmann, Washington Examiner, April 05, 2024

“50% of earners in the United States, those earning $46,500 or less per year, pay only 2.3% of total income tax in the U.S. In contrast, the top 1%, who earn $682,500 or more, pay 45.8% of total U.S. income tax. The proportion of total income tax paid by the richest has risen massively over the past two decades. In 2001, the top 1% of earners in the United States paid a third of income tax — 20 years later they are paying almost half.”

Germany: the Socialism/Capitalism Experiment

Today, as socialist ideas once again gain popularity around the world, people should remember an unintentional, large-scale experiment that confirmed the superiority of capitalism over socialism. If even the Germans couldn’t make socialism work, so the saying goes, that says a lot about this idea. This story is now depicted in the film Life Behind the Berlin Wall, which was awarded the “Audience Choice Award for Short Films” at the Anthem Film Festival, the largest libertarian film festival in the world.
