Friday, September 20th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

The 50 richest members of Congress in America hold a staggering $1.6 billion. But that’s nothing compared with China. The wealthiest 50 delegates to the National People’s Congress (NPC), China’s rubber-stamp parliament, control $94.7 billion, according to the Hurun Report’s latest rich list. That’s about 60 times more than their American counterparts.
