The Wealth.

When the wealth is seen in terms of money and only a very select few have this then the situation becomes very dicey,  we are heading for some very serious times because of this out come of civilization. 

Here is a meme that was posted on Facebook and it really does tell the entire story.

 The World Economic Forum released this REPORT
  • Almost half of the world’s wealth is now owned by just one percent of the population.
  • The wealth of the one percent richest people in the world amounts to $110 trillion. That’s 65 times the total wealth of the bottom half of the world’s population.
  • The bottom half of the world’s population owns the same as the richest 85 people in the world.
  • Seven out of ten people live in countries where economic inequality has increased in the last 30 years.
  • The richest one percent increased their share of income in 24 out of 26 countries for which we have data between 1980 and 2012.
  • In the US, the wealthiest one percent captured 95 percent of post-financial crisis growth since 2009, while the bottom 90 percent became poorer.
