    wealth

    Hi

    In Nicaragua, seventeen families ran the country before the revolution; all of the wealth was in the hands of those seventeen families.

    --- Does it mean that all they had they kept it in their hands? They left everything else behind.

    It means that those 17 families controlled all the wealth of the country.

    Re: wealth

    But do you think that wealth refers to money or rather to the prosperity of that country in general?

    I think it means both. Whoever controls the money, controls the prosperity. If the money is used for the good of the country, it will prosper, if it is used for selfish reasons by those who have control, the economy will falter.
