Lebanon’s Consumption Disparity in Despair [Infographic]
The sectarian disparity has gone too obvious to remain un-noticed. Following the 80/20 rule, something similar is being witnessed in our beloved country, where 20% of the ‘elite’ control nearly half of national consumption, while the nation’s poorest consumes its daily needs if not less, with a humiliating 7%. The results are expected when the high class owns a home for every member, cars for every day of the week, and enough money to show off time and time again. Sadly, with time, the middle class will sink to join the nation’s weakest economically and create a clash of classes similar to India’s slums and high-rises being wall to wall.
