Economic systems as complex systems are the source of many unconventional researches. The actual phenomena in complex systems have the non-scalability features and non-scalability does not exist without the power laws. This paper presents the occurrence of power series of rights and self-similarity in the distribution of national income in 2010, in terms of countries, the European Union and the Polish subregions. This means that one can study economic systems using tools of complex systems theory. This applies especially to the study of the mechanisms governing the system at the local level that generate global action. (original abstract)
