Half of world’s wealth now in hands of 1% of population

About 3.4 billion people – just over 70% of the global adult population – have wealth of less than $10,000.

The 85 richest people in the world have as much wealth as the 3.5 billion poorest.

Seven out of ten people live in countries where economic inequality has increased in the last 30 years.

In the United States, the wealthiest 1% captured 95 % of post-financial crisis growth since 2009, while the bottom 90 percent became poorer.

The top 10 countries, with their percentages of total global personal wealth.

  1. United States — 41.6%
  2. China — 10.5%
  3. Japan — 8.9%
  4. U.K. — 5.6%
  5. Germany — 3.9%
  6. France — 3.5%
  7. Canada — 3.0%
  8. Italy — 2.9%
  9. Australia — 2.0%
  10. South Korea — 1.6%

Countries with the highest wealth inequality, according to a Allianz report.

  1. U.S.A. — 80.56
  2. Sweden — 79.90
  3. U.K. — 75.72
  4. Indonesia — 73.61
  5. Austria — 73.59
  6. Germany — 73.34
  7. Colombia — 73.18
  8. Chile — 73.17
  9. Brazil — 72.86
  10. Mexico — 70.00

In most Western countries, the people with wealth and power tend to assume that they are the majority.

However, is that really the case?

The parasitic class of super-elites has bastardized capitalism to extract value for themselves at the cost of everyone else and the true majorities around the world. Since governments are beholden to the hands that feed them — the parasitic super-elites — we the people are coming to the realization that we are called to duty as agents of change.

Food and thought for reflection and action:

How can you as an individual facilitate change?

No one can accomplish everything, but everyone can do something!

Do you choose to be one of the masses that is deaf, dumb and blind — and dangerously out of touch, or an agent of change?

What is the one thing you can do each day to let your voice be heard and tell your government leaders and corporations that “enough is enough”?

Is real change voting for and placing business interests in positions of government? Was their political influence not strong enough though political donations and lobbying?

Your future and the future of your children depends on your action or inaction.

I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.

      I use Meditation to center my self. Re: getting started and the first 10-15 min are wasted. Never consider it wasted. Sometimes we need time to leave one activity and create space for creativity and insight to emerge.

      Also recognize that gaps in flow in any activity are part of the process.
