Inequality in the US and UK

The first video is about inequality in the US and the second about inequality in the UK. It’s been argued (forbes.com)that the picture given is inaccurate because wealth is correlated with age and the poorest 20% are going to be the youngest who simply haven’t had time to accumulate wealth. I don’t know how the stats and charts were constructed and if they took the age factor into account in any way but the inequality represented by the statistic that the top 1% have as much wealth as 60% of the population is not going to be negated in any way by a reference to age differentials.
