Today, a respected Romanian business (online) publication revealed that the first 300 richest Romanians actually managed to grab 32.5 % of our GDP! At the same time it looks like the wealth growth of the richest is twice as fast as the rest of the population. Making a little calculation I found that 80% of the GDP will belong to the richest 300 within the next 30 years..

o, this is why I made the little summary in English , sorry . I will try to find out an English source.
here we go :
richest 300 romanians

the point was to show the big percentage of the GDP owned by a very very small group of people, and if this is also normal in US/EU ?

1983 33.8% 47.5% 18.7%
1989 37.4% 46.2% 16.4%
1992 37.2% 46.6% 16.3%
1995 38.5% 45.4% 16.1%
1998 38.1% 45.3% 16.6%
2001 33.4% 51.0% 15.5%

Financial Wealth
Top 1 percent Next 19 percent Bottom 80 percent
1983 42.9% 48.4% 8.7%
1989 46.9% 46.5% 6.6%
1992 45.6% 46.7% 7.7%
1995 47.2% 45.9% 7.0%
1998 47.3% 43.6% 9.1%
2001 39.7% 51.5% 8.8%

 


This shows that the top 1% of the country range between holding 30-40% of the nation's wealth.
