Inequality in Germany

Sadly, this is the case in most countries. As you pointed out, the rich get richer as they are able - with their resources - to navigate the complex taxation laws. I must add that, at the end of the day, it's people on fixed middle-range income who have less money to spend for their food and other necessities. In some countries (such as in France), those who have inherited properties but do not have cash enough to feed themselves a lifetime without having to work must sell to survive and pay the taxes. I know of a man who had to leave his job in another city to care for his sick mother. After she died, he had to sell the house he had inherited to pay for the inheritance tax. Now, he lives in a rented modest apartment.
