The Shocking Amount of Wealth and Power Held by 0.001% of the World Population

The Shocking Amount of Wealth and Power Held by 0.001% of the World Population | Global Awareness & The World Around Us | Scoop.it
The level of inequality around the world is truly staggering.
Jennifer Boyd's insight:

I have no issue with wealth; however, I DO have a problem with it when it becomes this disporportioate and has a very negative impact on hard-working Americans that are just scraping by. When wealth becomes 'theft', it becomes a major issue with vast repercussions around the globe. This trend cannot continue. Either the people will rise-up and reclaim better wages and better lives for themselves and their children OR the trend will continue until people are so poor, and resources so diminished, that there is nothing left for the 1% to take. Either way, it ends. Better to end at the hands of the people than to wait for the day that we're fighting over table scraps.
