    Much of the anger in today’s politics stems from an ongoing stagnation in living standards, coupled with the ___8___ of a small minority becoming infinitely richer. Britain is one of the most unequal societies in Europe, where success increasingly depends on where you live and who your parents are. Forty-four per cent of UK wealth is owned by 10% of households, while just 9% of wealth is owned by the bottom half. This looks set to continue, with more than half of the net increase in wealth between 2010 and 2014 captured by the top decile of households. Yet although wealth inequality is twice ___7___ income inequality, which has on some measures actually fallen slightly in recent years, it has strangely received far less attention. Of course, expectations of a better life cannot be met without wealth creation. And this needs investment and technological progress through innovation, which in turn requires rewards for the risk-taking entrepreneurs who make it happen. In other words, it is far easier to create a fairer society when the size of the pie is growing. That is why my party recently ___8___ proposals to replace business rates with a far more investment-friendly land value tax. But what particularly frustrates about wealth inequality in Britain is that it is not obviously the result of productive activity, and has widened primarily thanks to asset price inflation, especially that of property. And this inequality is now so deeply ___9___ that relying on the doubtful existence of a ___10___ effect is no longer enough, if indeed it ever was.
