This astonishing stat about wealth distribution is simply: astonishing.
7 Billion People. Total wealth on the planet $241Trillion and 85 people own $110Trillion of that. Can this be correct?
The botton 50% of the people on earth own only $1.7Trillion. The bottom 69% own just 3% or £7.23Trillion.
This might sound like a financial imbalance, but it also means a massive power imbalance. These people carry significantly more influence than the one vote they cast. Makes you think…
