85 Super Wealthy People Have More Money Than The Poorest 3.5 Billion Combined

YAAARRRRR!!!

The global economy is structured to systematically funnel wealth to the very top of the pyramid, and this centralization of global wealth is accelerating with each passing year. According to the United Nations, 85 super wealthy people have more money than the poorest 3.5 billion people on the planet combined. And 1.2 billion of those poor people live on less than $1.25 a day.

There is something deeply, deeply broken about a system that produces these kinds of results. Seven out of every ten people on the planet live in countries where the gap between the wealthy and the poor has increased in the last 30 years. Despite our technological advances, somewhere around a billion people go to bed hungry every single night. And when our fundamentally flawed financial system finally does collapse, it will be the poor that will suffer the worst.

I probably have more money than the poorest 2 billion combined, and I'm certainly not wealthy. Also, exactly how does America rate, because having loans and CC debt count as negative money in my eyes.

So What! They either made their money or inherited it and don't owe anyone else a damn thing.

Why is it shocking that rich people have money & poor people don't? That's what being rich means, you have more money than most people.

If everyone had a ton of money, and then someone managed to get a shit-ton, then all of a sudden the ton-of-money crowd are the 'poor people.'

FYI, if you have over a quarter mil in assets, you are the top 1% of the planet. If you have a mere $50k in assets, you are top 10%.

You people are bitching about yourselves. YOU are the 'rich' compared to most on planet Earth.

So WHAT?

These are the same 85 people who claim that taxes should be higher and the money should go to help the 3.5 billion.

But the higher taxes impact them very little -- if at all.

It is the middle class who get screwed over...

Agreed, but the numbers I've seen are even lower. It only takes around $30,000 in yearly income to put you in the global 1%.

People are such hypocrites on this issue. They only see the fact that some are richer than they are. Most in western societies are FAR better off than the vast majority of this planet.
