Top-right corner: Thailand.

(Or any other big city, where utter poverty tends to live right next to utter wealth.)

I really like this. I wish you'd do more socio-political ones :)

Except, Thailand is not a big city.

But you're right; although I haven't been to Bangkok, it would probably fit. Los Angeles, New York and Kathmandu (where I'm from) would too.

I don't think there'd be any "top-right corner." Assuming that "haves" and "have nots" add up to a constant that includes all things a place may or may not have, the graph would be a y=-x+b form.

I love the funny ones, but this is of a different, more serious and thought-provoking class. The have nots always outnumber the haves, so to me, the bottom right is an imaginary state (hence "illusion"). At the same time it represents where a lot of haves think they are ("delusion?"). Well done!

As her earlier card shows, there are few have nots in America and that shows an increasingly large number of people who are anti-intellectual.

I must be stupid because I cannot see how you can have an axis with haves against have-nots. What does that mean? What does the line show? Millions demand to know.
