Since the “financial repression,” the most powerful people have only gotten more powerful. A 2013 Oxfam reportfound that 80 people had as much wealth as 1/2 of humanity, and a few months later Forbes said the number had dropped to 67. Many of us asked who exactly these people are, and now the list has been released.

These are the same people, very likely, keeping the “filter” on our representative democracy. Do you feel uncomfortable about the fact that many of these people have seen their wealth increase drastically while at the same time the middle class shrinks and “austerity” is demanded almost globally outside of Sweden and Norway. It makes me feel uncomfortable that the political influence of these people have served to increase their wealth and weaken regulations, and I suggest we seek meaningful changes on a systemic level. What Bernie Sanders had to say in his meme about wealth inequality is true, and it is most certainly not an accident.

    I think folks in USA need to step back from the Saul Alynsky class warfare so championed by President Obama and Hillary Clinton and realize these very wealthy top 80 create more jobs from people than could ever be attained by Robin Hood redistribution of their wealth. Such redistribution may indeed provide a temporary spike in consumer spending and give the impression of a great turn around but such would be short lived as surely these folks are simply smarter business people than most of us. Adding up all those billions shown I get 1,903,000,000,000 (one trillion nine hundred and 3 billion.) Please correct me if I am wrong. Divide that by total US population of 321 million people and it’s a paltry $5,928. Think how short lived that party would be for each person. I think the Obama/Clinton logic on class warfare is quite inept and nothing but political spin on their parts. I think these extraordinary very wealthy people should be given every tax break available and let their genius spurn more opportunity job wise for us not so blessed as they!

    It’s immaterial, Michael. What do you propose – confiscating their wealth?! How ’bout taking the proceeds of your RV when it happens and becoming a producer. Let’s see if you can hit this list!
