  1. Because man is an evolutionarily lazy creature. The brain is so designed that if a person is comfortable, then he will not do anything, but will strive only for pleasure. To accumulate wealth and manage it, you need a lot of effort and desire to do it. Ordinary people do not manage their wealth, but spend it very quickly, and so they become poor again. And to accumulate wealth, you need a rare neurotic temperament. This is when a person can not be still, constantly trying to achieve something more. When it makes constantly inflated demands on itself. When he gets pleasure from the process of acquiring a new one. When he likes to compete with others. In addition, wealth is a constant stress due to the risks of losing a lot. Most people don't need it. A couch, a beer, a TV, and an alcoholic T-shirt are enough for them.

  2. Because not everyone wants to be rich. Because wealth is not only rights, it is also a huge responsibility. But, people in the mass are led and are not able to take on a global responsibility.

    vennost'. Example:do you always throw plastic in separate trash cans, do you always turn off the water while brushing your teeth,do you always clean up after yourself (not to mention other people's) garbage -in the forest, outside the city… etc .

  3. Here we have 100 coins and 10 people, if we give each of them 10 coins, then there will be no rich people, but there will be no poor people either.If we give 19 coins to one person and 9 coins to the others, we can already see how one gets richer and the rest get poorer. And if we give one 50, and the rest 5,5. Then we already have one rich, and the rest have become poor.

    Wealth is only a difference of potentials and for the wealth of one, somewhere else someone must become poor. And then, in order to get rich faster than your neighbor, you need to fight either with a neighbor, and it's hard to fight with an equal. Or� to take away from the already poor, it is much easier.

  4. Because the rich live by the labor of others. If you live alone on an island, you can't get rich. If you have 11 people, you can convince/get them to work for you, i.e. you will become rich.

    In reality, if you very roughly estimate, you get a pyramid in which each layer is 10 times larger in number than the higher layer, i.e. 100 million poor people will feed 10 million direct bosses, 1 million middle managers, 100 thousand top managers and 10 thousand owners/shareholders/millionaires.

    Thus, no matter how hard you try, almost 90% will always be poor, but many poor people have the prospect of growing and moving to a higher level of the pyramid, if they survive the competition and pass on their heads.

    Why are there fewer poor people in developed countries? Because the lower level of the pyramid is partially filled with labor migrants (who are not considered in statistics, because they do not have citizenship) or they move production to other countries with cheap labor, and put their own bosses over them.

  5. In different countries, depending on the differences in the structure and features of development, the number of poor and rich people differs. If we take the United States or the major European countries, the people there are richer and they have more influence in the world. And in other countries (due to various characteristics), the number of poor people is higher, and the number of rich people is lower in proportion. Russia is one of those countries that, keeping up more or less successfully with the advanced countries, has the worst ratio of poor to rich. This is related to whether people of different well-being implement the relevant features. To overcome the gap, we need to catch up. And this happens quite slowly. Now we are also seeing this gap. We will continue to catch up, but the gap between us and rich countries with a large proportion of the wealthy remains.

    Countries differ not only in the number of people who possess wealth, but also in how it is distributed. More even distribution in developed countries. It is characterized by the fact that there are both a significant number of rich people and a large number of poor people. But there are significantly fewer poor people, and not so many rich people in relation to the population. This is the difference that characterizes the differences between rich and poor countries, and between the proportion of rich and poor in these countries. But we have the property that we have more poor people, the number of rich people is relatively small. Despite the fact that in terms of natural resources, we are a rich country.

    Countries where more people participate in the distribution of wealth and the quality of resources are the United States, Pacific countries like New Zealand and Australia, and Europe. We belong to European countries, but to Eastern Europe. These countries are located not far from us and were part of the same state not so long ago, but they are less well-off. Now there are opportunities to slowly eliminate their shortcomings, but these opportunities are being implemented very slowly.

  6. Because it's easier to be poor than rich. Moreover, in order to become and remain poor, you don't need to make any effort, and in order to get rich and maintain your fortune in the long term, you need to maintain 24/7 mobilization. Even if we take situations where someone gets a good start from their parents, the lack of this very mobilization and idleness will sooner or later lead to bankruptcy.

  7. If we look at social inequality, it depends more on the policy of taxation and social support. Different countries have different levels of rich and less affluent people, as an example, you can compare the Scandinavian countries and the United States because of different indicators of inequality and views on the problem of poverty. In the United States, it is considered that rich people became rich because they worked hard, studied all day, and poor people became so because they did not work hard enough, did not study when it was necessary, did not want to look for development opportunities, etc., and because of this different attitude. In the Scandinavian countries, however, it is considered that the rich have become rich due to a combination of various circumstances, such as better-off parents (and therefore better opportunities), assistance from family and personal connections, etc., and poverty is considered as an outwardly uncontrolled life period in which a person cannot get out of this maelstrom, so they are helped by various social supports (due to high taxation), as well as until recently an unconditional basic income.
