This is my 1st rant ever on ATS. So if I fluffed something up it wasn't intentional.

This type of story has appeared in Forbes and other major publications but I used this one from China as they use the word "top" as its not talking about just those Billionaires from one country. Billionaires in Russia are also profiting along with China and the United States.

Really though is this right during COVID-19? While many have to sit at home and possibly go bankrupt they as always seize the opportunities. So wheres the United Nations on this one. Wheres Greta?, AOC? , Pelosi?

Why doesn't the United Nations bring up to vote that all profits made by a billionaire be returned to their respective country of residence to help offset the global debt incurred? Or to also pass it onto all those suffering financially? They obviously don't need the extra cash now do they.

So why the F not?


Oh that's right. I forgot about the Georgia Guidestones and the march towards population 500 million. Stupid me

Top Billionaires Got Richer



Business magazine Forbes released a list of the global top 25 super-rich who gained the most in wealth during the past two months. The fortune of top 25 billionaires increased $255 billion from two months ago when the US stock market hit the bottom on March 23 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, business magazine Forbes said. The top 25 super-rich's wealth tied to public stocks reached $1.5 trillion, accounting for 16 percent of the total wealth held by the world's billionaires. Three Chinese billionaires - Pony Ma, Jack Ma and Huang Zheng - are ranked among the top 25, taking 18, 19 and 22 spots, respectively.

You want the United Nations to confiscate and redistribute wealth?

That idea pretty much nullified anything you have to say in your op.

Exactly. And if I had money to burn I would have made a ton on the stock market too.

I think the united nations building should be turned into a homeless shelter.

And immediately de-funded

From reading the story most of these guys made this money from the stock market doing well or they own online shopping companies...

No wonder they made money.

Oh, I am making a lot of sense.

You don't seem to understand the logic to keep your enemy close by exposing the enemy by what I wrote, the method and means. What a excellent proposal by President Trump via speech at the United Nations. Hell why not invite Putin and Xi Jinping so all three present it to the UN. Plus the other loud mouths should have at it but they wont touch it all all are compromised.

So righteous aren't we all? They should give the money back as in "were all in this together"? Right?

I can even hear the song from years ago; "We are the World"

You know how the sheep are herded. Well the same can be done to the select few. We have a very unique situation here. Since man came from the caves we as in the world have never been shut down. Possibly Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump or Joe Biden will take a full page ad in the New York Times recommending they give all back. Why not. Its a great platform

Sure do as they already have the plan set up. Just like Obama. I should forward my idea to Greta's agent as she can run with it as the UN already recognizes her

Actually, I sent my idea to Mr. President Donald Trump. He should take it and present it to the United Nations for a resolution and a vote.

Contact Donald Trump 2020

Sorry to hear that Ape. But yes, I also supported Amazon along with Build.com. But at least it was skewed in favor of Build.com

Live Aid had exacerbated the already terrible humanitarian crisis

The Ethiopian dictator was using the money the west gave him to buy sophisticated weapons

I don't get the dig on billionaires. Even if all their money was taken and equally distributed among the poor and middle class everyone might get a few dollars at best. It's not that much money big picture and would make no considerable impact on humanity. Most of the money is not even actually money. Not that many industries or even people with that much actual money in cash.

This not (solely) aimed at the OP but it sort of got me thinking so here goes:

Why are the rich always the ones attacked? I mean think about if they made their money building up business from nothing. Made their money working hard day and night sometimes and took a chance on themselves and their belief and yeah even the stupid loophole laws in taxes etc. so what? If you had the money or did the same thing would you consider yourself the bad guy? I'm not talking about those who've broken the law or not paid taxes where there is no legal loophole or wiggle room or whatever I'm talking about those who made a business from nothing, stuck to the law and yeah even use those loopholes. I never understood why they are always always the bad guys in this.

Was it them who stopped you or me or anyone from doing the same? I doubt that.

Also the UN is a joke and the idea of letting them decide what people can and can't do with their money is very China esque. It's why I voted Brexit, the EU has plans coming through the pipeline to do something very similar, heck they're demanding we sign up to a no competition agreement in the withdrawl bill that would mean we couldn't cut taxes below theirs. The UN like the EU need to be given the boot.

You are one of the select few. You have a roof over your head, a car to drive, and home internet access. That makes you one the wealthiest 10% of people in the world. And yet you waste your time and wealth whining about how hard it is for you to be slightly richer.

The sun rises -the rich get richer.
Pretty old news.

Yup. While the corporatists had all the peons yelling about fears of boogieman 'socialism', the only ones who actually came out ahead were the cutthroat capitalists. Big surprise. They played the masses yet again. The whole covid scene was a big business capitalism heyday. Guess who lost... the people, small business, and representative government (no thanks to extremely poor leadership from the top down). The corporatocracy doesn't represent the people or the best interests of the people, and it never will.

Man you know how the game works, USE IT! Some of us regular folks saw our investments increase as well.
The rich always rule, join them, overthrow them, replace them six generations later. Actually, thats kind of what is actually happening right now. Hopefully some of those people are arrested or disappear in a jungle plane crash one day.
