Global Inequality

The staggering stats. The richest 2% control half of the worlds wealth and the richest 10% own 85%. The poorest 50% own 1%. This is what Uncle Milty was working for with smashing success. In the past although people were poor they controled land and thus some access to sustinance. The last 200 years has help eliminate this problem. Not that I advocating going back but expropriation.
