Wealth Distribution Law and Legal Definition

Wealth Distribution is the manner in which wealth is divided among the members of the economy. A perfectly equal wealth distribution would mean everyone in the country has exactly the same wealth. In reality, wealth is unequally distributed. A few people have a great deal of wealth and most others have less. Any well-functioning economy, that's doing a pretty good job of satisfying consumer wants and needs, will have some degree of inequality in the distribution of wealth. Along with wealth come market control, political power, and the ability to accumulate more wealth at the expense of others.
