“The richest 1 percent has increased its income by 60 percent in the last 20 years with the financial crisis accelerating rather than slowing the process,” while the income of the top 0.01 percent has seen even greater growth, a new Oxfam report said.

Re: The world’s 100 richest people earn enough money in 3 months to end poverty worldwide
we need to learn to follow the money - more transparency in global transactions.

people need to learn to take care of themselves. they don't need rich people taking care of them.

it's ok to earn a lot of money as long as you really earned it. the problem is hidden slush funds and laundered money

The jobs they provide are vastly disproportionate (on the low side) to the obscene amount of money they make. And by the way, MOST of that money is probably options and investment income, not "earned".

Money isn't the only problem.
There is a constant lack of people that are willing to think a couple of years ahead, instead they decide to live from day to day and do not invest in their future.
Social structure and education and a balanced political structure, not (entirely) based on ideology, can provide the solution.
That needs money and people with a drive to improve the world.

Re: The world’s 100 richest people earn enough money in 3 months to end poverty worldwide
The claim is disingenuous. To adequately feed to world's poor requires increasing economic production, which requires an investment of capital. It also requires, importantly, spreading an economic system that can support such investment and production. In other words, it requires the spread of free trade, of capitalism. Taking the 'wealth' of the rich and giving it to the poor will neither invest capital in future production nor spread free trade. Thus, it would momentarily change the balance of wealth, to no long term benefit.

There's also a number of dangers associated with it. First, it would massively rearrange the balance of money, and thus cause massive inflation in poor countries. This would completely undercut any benefit received from spreading the wealth.

Second, by merely giving them money, you encourage dependency. Giving such vast sums of money will not encourage them to become independent.

Further, the 'wealth' that the claim is based on is not actually wealth at all. It's fiat currency - it's debt. The wealth of the rich is illusory, a complete fabrication to enable them to maintain a dominant social and economic position. It is a tool of dominance, not a factor of production. To alleviate the want of the poor requires providing them actual goods. Transferring fiat currency will not do that. Again, only production and a social structure geared towards production can help them. And these are the very things that no government or humanitarian agency is interested in spreading. They are too absorbed in their anti-market, anti-capitalist ideologies to recognize the need for productive social arrangements.

I would also point out that if all it takes to alleviate world poverty is $240 billion, which is of course a total lie, then the rich countries could print that much and send it too them. TARP was $700 billion; the stimulus was over $1 trillion; Europe has increased its own currency supply by trillions; the Fed adds tens of billions to the supply every month.

This is a simplistic, leftist, and manipulative lie.

You want to help the poor, here's what you do:

a) Decrease the power of Western governments and corporations by (i) ending government involvement in the economy, (ii) destroying all corporations by undermining their legal framework.

b) Don't "buy American". Buy whatever is cheapest and of the highest quality, according to your needs and wants. This will have the corollary effect of increasing American production, contrary to rightest propaganda.

c) Establish a hard, gold based currency. This will prevent the monetary enslavement of poor countries.

d) Open free trade agreements with every country in the world, even tyrannies. Remove all international trade barriers.

Do that, and our problems will resolve themselves in a matter of decades.

Re: The world’s 100 richest people earn enough money in 3 months to end poverty worldwide
240 Billion (dollars) divided by 6 Billion (people) equals 40 dollars per person. So in three months (one fourth of a year) they make enough to give 10 dollars to every person on earth.

How is that supposed to make any kind of difference?

Re: The world’s 100 richest people earn enough money in 3 months to end poverty worldwide
HEY Einstein... tell you a little secret, back in the 60's that southern president Johnson declared a "war on poverty".. have you any idea how much we as tax payers have doled out of our meager pay checks to pay for this war? 16 trillion dollars!!! Since this so called war began we have seen inner city's become run down rat holes, we have seen black familys be dismantled, we have seen a rise in food stamp and welfare use beyond comprehension. There are still poor people like there are still drugs, there will always be poor people as there will always be drugs.

Now if you were to phrase it this way it would work and work well.. The worlds richest people help provide jobs in the most poor countrys. Jobs building homes, providing water and power to poor conditions. Jobs in medicine, Jobs in agriculture.. People who earn their future are much happier than those who are handed a living. Its a fact of life so while it sounds honorable to take from the rich and give to the poor it just does not work out as well as it sounds.

Where I have a huge problem is old people living in squaller while prisoners are well fed, have entertainment a warm bed, medical attention, etc.. OR???? how about we study the humping back polkda dot frog to the tune of 12 million. but our veterans lose their homes to foreclosure.. GET IT?
