Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
little about wealth distribution, and thus the level of poverty

As mentioned before, those are NOT the same thing. Income distribution in North Korea is probably very good, people are equally poor. But they still starve to death when the crops fail.

Wealth distribution does NOT measure poverty.

Besides, HDI includes wealth distribution.

But yes, it sais very little about pensioners incomes.
