Economics in the Harry Potter world is weird, not least because there's a single bank controlling all the money.

But who has (or needs) the biggest chamber at Gringotts? Who is the richest wizard?

    The biggest chamber doesn't mean the richest wizard. – marcellothearcane Aug 15 '19 at 21:09

    I don't see this as especially broad or unclear. A single twit from JKR would answer it handily ("X is the richest wizard in the world"), for example. – Valorum Aug 15 '19 at 22:53

    @DavidW if I have a pile of money and you own all of Wales, then I have Wealth, but you have Waleth. – Matt Gutting Aug 16 '19 at 20:44
