One small nit to pick: née, with the extra e at the end, is for females. Ronald, a.k.a. Maulana, may not be pleased. The proper form for a male is né. The form "née" is by far the most common in English for the simple reason that men rarely change their surnames.
1) Are you saying it's impossible? 2) Are you saying that the creators of Microsoft, Home Depot, and McDonald's were all born rich? Oh, and my self-employed plumber friend, excavator friend, carpenter friend, paid-his-own-way-through-college-and-grad-school engineer friend - all must have been born rich, because they could not have created their own self-employed job, right? 3) All jobs are controlled by a plutocratic conspiracy controlled by the Koch brothers, right? Or is that the Vanderbilts and Rockefellers? No, it must be the Rothchilds. Wait - no, it's the papacy. Dang, I just can't keep all this straight in my little tiny brain.
The chart is interesting, but only modestly so. Its message would be much better if it were normalized for inflation local to the country in question (granted, it's plucked from another source, but it appears not to be so normalized) -- or normalized to a standard basket of goods. Further, it does not show that the /poor/ are better off. Per capita GDP /could/ rise by the rich getting all the money. I don't at all believe this is the case, but the graph does not show that it isn't. In other words, while showing that per-capita (all capita, i.e. all heads, i.e. all people) GDP rises in Hong Kong faster than in France, it would be good to show that, concomitantly, the share of GDP of the working poor also rises. I would intentionally exclude the non-working poor, i.e. those on the public dole, because their share of GDP is unlikely to rise much, if at all, in a growing economy. If included with the working poor (e.g. by simply studying the bottom quintile), their constant income would tend to flatten that curve, thus supporting or even enhancing the argument of those who think that a growing economy does not help the poor. It would seem self-evident that a growing economy does not help those who live off a constant monthly welfare check, or at least not to a great extent, but I'm happy to be convinced otherwise if my H-null is incorrect.
