the practical difference in one's life between $100,000 and $100,000,000,000 is smaller than between $100,000 and $10,000

@LunaDragofelis After world war 2 in the Netherlands, all bank accounts were frozen and the government gave everybody 10 gulden (no idea what that is in todays money). The govenment then took 1-2 years to unfreeze all the bank accounts and figure out how much of your money (possible war profits) you were allowed to keep.
War profits were taxed 95% and if you could proof you were ethical in the war the tax was 70%

"Wealth" could be interpreted in a broader sense, to include any form of prosperity in a given economic system. Which ideally is spread equitably among everyone.
