I hate to say it but this is less than 1% and where are the protesters in their door steps?

Here is a link to the story 85 have most of the Money

Here is a snip it from the article


The 85 richest people on Earth have the same amount of wealth as the bottom half of the population, according to a new report that highlights growing income inequality as political and business leaders gather for the annual World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Those wealthy individuals are a small part of the richest 1% of the population, which combined owns about 46% of global wealth, according to the report from British humanitarian group Oxfam International.

The study found the richest 1% had $110 trillion in wealth -- 65 times the total wealth of the bottom half of the population.
That bottom half of the population owned about $1.7 trillion, or about 0.7% of the world's wealth. That's the same amount as owned by the 85 richest people, the report said.


It is not to unbelievable but if true then 0.12% of the people in the world have in their control half of the worlds wealth and that is an amazing fact.

If so then these 85 are the controlling force in all Govts, wars and the markets around the world. they are not the Illuminati but they are the ones holding the gold so they make the rules.

I think if you look at any society in human history on Earth then you will find a parallel distribution of wealth no matter what the ruling class is using to stand above everyone else. (Democracy, Monarcy, Fascism)
